In March 2022, the DfE published an expectation that state-funded mainstream schools should deliver a school week of at least 32.5 hours and that any state-funded mainstream schools currently offering a school week of below 32.5 hours should work towards increasing their hours to provide at least 32.5 hours by September 2023 at the latest.
From September 2023 our school week is 32.5hrs:
Official School Opening Time: 8.45am
Official School Closing Time: 3.15pm
