Dear parent/ carer,
School Day Restructure – September 2020
As you will be aware, we recently consulted parents and carers about making an amendment to our school day. We had a very positive response from the consultation with both parents and staff. We have now been able to analyse the feedback that we received and we write to formally confirm that we will be moving ahead with the proposal.
As a result, from 1st September 2020, our school day structure will be as follows:
||Reception to Year 6
We will continue to offer Breakfast club and After School Club provision as follows:
|After School Club
|EYFS After School Club (Nursery & Reception)
You are reminded that all Breakfast Club and After School Club attendance must be agreed in advance and fees must be paid ahead by 2 weeks. When you sign up to either of these provisions, you are charged the full amount for the club for the duration of the term unless you inform the office directly that you wish to withdraw from the service. Any non-attendance at these provisions due to absence, illness or personal preference remain chargeable as you initially agree to taking a place which cannot be offered on an ad-hoc basis to other children.
Breakfast Club and After School Club sign up sheets have been included in this report pack for all children. These must be completed and returned to the office via email by 1st July 2020 so that spaces can be allocated and Parent Pay accounts can be updated.
If you have scanning facilities at home, please scan the completed form. If you do not have scanning facilities, please take a clear photo of your form and send it across to firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st July 2020 for allocations.
Dear parent or carer,
RE: Formal Consultation Feedback Request
After very careful consideration of our schools budget, St John & St James’ C of E Primary School are formally launching a proposal for a school day restructure . The restructure would see our school day change from its current end time of 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and 3.00pm on Friday’s and instead would be replaced with a standard 3.30pm finish Monday to Friday from September 2020.
As part of the restructure we have taken into consideration our extended day services and will be extending our after school club provision in order to ensure consistency for those parents who rely on these clubs for childcare. If this restructure process is successful, our school day would be as follows:
|8.00am to 8.55am
|8.55am to 3.30pm
|9.00am to 12.00pm
||Nursery AM session
|12.30pm to 3.30pm
||Nursery PM session
|3.30pm to 5.00pm
||After School Clubs
