The government's White Paper of 2022 set out a minimum expectation of 32.5 hours of school for children each week. This includes breaks and lunchtimes but does not include breakfast or after school clubs.
Currently, at Lainesmead, our hours are:
Mondays - Thursdays 8:35am - 3:15pm
Fridays - 8:35am - 1:35pm
This is a total of 31 hours and 40 minutes
Set out in the document below is the proposed change to:
Mondays - Thursdays 8:30am - 3:20pm
Fridays - 8:30am - 1:40pm
This will then fulfil 32.5 hours as set by the government as statutory for September 2024.
The governing body welcome responses from the school community via our Clerk to Governors, Lorraine Walker, on firstname.lastname@example.org
