## School Day Timings Review

### In order to maximise learning within our school, we are commencing a consultation period where we review the timings of the school day. We would like to embark on a collaborative process to gain opinion form all stake holders to ascertain whether they believe there would be advantages to making some minimal changes to the timings of the school day and if so, what the preferred changes would be.

We would like to consider moving to a 32 + 1 model. This means that there are 32 periods, all of 50 minutes. The +1 is PSR of 10 minutes each day, which added together equals a total of 50 minutes devoted to PSR.

Some of the benefits of moving to a 32 + 1 Model are as follows:

1. Consistency of time allocated to subjects.

2. Universal Support increased for young people through extra time and dedicated and planned PSR time.

3. Efficiency of timetable improved.

4. Less confusion of timings of periods starting/finishing.

5. Extra short day to support co-curricular programme, staff meetings, CLPL opportunities etc

With 32 periods over the week (instead of 33), this equates to having 2 days where there are 7 periods (long days) and 3 days where there are 6 periods (short days).
