Frequently asked questions from stakeholders:
• ‘Will my child who is not in Year 11 still be able to get support with homework after school?’
Yes, the KS3 Learning Club and the KS4 Learning Café will still be open after school to support homework.
• ‘Can the lunchtime be extended any longer?’
Unfortunately, we cannot increase the lunchtime any longer, as we share the dining hall with our campus partners who also need to provide lunch times for their students.
• ‘Can you extend Period 7 even longer as students have missed so much time in Year 11 already?’
We are not planning to extend the school day any longer than the Period 7 that we have proposed, but we will be opening the Learning Café for Year 11 students between 4.00pm-5.00pm whenever possible to support any students who wish to remain in school for additional study.
I believe that the changes we have made will ensure a smooth start to the school day and all students will be ready to learn; the increased amount of time delivered for the tutor reading programme will enhance students’ performance and, by creating an extra day’s worth of learning for Year 11, there will be a positive impact on student outcomes.
If you have any concerns or questions, please contact your child’s Pastoral Leader in the first instance.
Once again, I thank you for your ongoing support and feedback to this consultation.
