The School Day and Timings

The school day:

 

End of mini-staggering: We will end the mini-staggering at the end of P2, P3 and the end of the school day. The timings of the school day can be found here.

 

Wednesday Period 5: Not technically a COVID decision, but this is being reinstated as a teaching lesson after two years of a reduced timetable. It’s included here for completeness.

 

Fewer doubles/triple lessons: Last year, we tried to have more double or triple lessons to reduce movement around the school. These will not be in place as a given now. However, some subjects have liked them more than others and so we have designed our timetable taking into account what departments’ preferences were.

 

Tutor Time: We were pleased to keep tutor times this last year. It was vital that we kept them as it allowed cohesion and check-ins on pupils. Assemblies were sadly ended, but pleasingly we will be bringing these back in this year. However, we are planning to keep regular whole-school assemblies via Teams as part of our assembly programme as it has given us a chance to join together as a whole school in ways we hadn't in the past.

School Day Timings:

 

Before School: Students can arrive from 07:45. Between 07:45 and 08:00, students are to remain in the playground or vestibule, keeping 2m away from each other. From 08:00 they are to arrive via the nearest entrance and join the one-way system round to designated non-science classrooms for their year group. At 08:30, students who are not already in their own tutor base are to move at this point, via the one-way system where relevant, to their tutor base to be welcomed by their tutor.

 

08:40: Tutor time.

09:10: Period 1: in most cases this will be for a double lesson, with only some pupils moving at the changeover between P1 and P2.

11:00-11:10: Breaktime: Staggered dismissal of classes to breaktime. Pupils to go, via the one-way system, either to designated section of playground for their year group, to queue for canteen via room 44 at set times for each year group, or to set indoor spaces for their year group if wet/cold. At the end of breaktime, students will be dismissed from the playground by year group.

11:35: Period 3

12:25-12:35:  Lunchtime: Staggered dismissal of classes to breaktime.
