The government are requiring all school to have a minimum length school day by September 2023

This document provides details on the expectation that state-funded mainstream schools should deliver a school week of at least 32.5 hours by September 2023. The white paper Opportunity for all: strong schools with great teachers for your child sets out this expectation, and 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.

We are currently consulting with staff and parents with the following proposal:
