Our School Week - Compulsory Core Offer (hours)
Dear St. Luke's Families,
In line with new guidance from the Department of Education (due to become statutory in September 2023) regarding the length of the School day and week, we will be making the following changes from September 2022.
The following will be in place by September 2022
At St. Luke's, we will offer a minimum expectation of 32.5 hours a week in School and this will be based on the official start time and end time of our School Day.
Official start time - our School will have a rolling start from 8.40 am to 8.50am and the day will officially start at 8.50am
** children arriving on site after this will be marked as LATE.
Official end time - our School will have an end time of 3.15pm each day.
** children being picked up after 3.20pm will be recorded as LATE pick up.
The above equals a core offer of 32 hours and 55 minutes.
Parents were given notice of this change in June 2022.
** please note the only change from existing arrangements will be the move away from an optional early finish on Fridays at 2pm.
