Proposal to shorten lunch

The Academy would like to consult parents over the proposal to shorten lunchtime from 40 minutes to 30 minutes from 12th June and therefore the school day will end at 3pm. Students will be allowed to stay on site until 3.20pm.


The reasons we would like to shorten lunchtime is we operate a split lunch system with some pupils in lessons and some on lunch. This makes it difficult for us to use many of our staff to cover duties and therefore we rely on recruiting additional staff who do not know our pupils as well. With a shortened lunchtime we will be able to manage this more effectively and ensure we provide high quality supervision and maintain our high standards.
