The Department for Education’s white paper ‘Opportunity for all: strong schools with great teachers for your child’ sets an expectation that all state-funded mainstream schools will deliver a minimum length of school week of 32.5 hours as soon as they can, and from September 2023 at the latest. Copperfield Primary Academy meets this requirement by operating a 6.5hr school day for 190 days of the year, with a 32.5hr school week, except for weeks with INSET days or bank holidays.
School gates open at 8.30am
School day starts and registration closes at 8:45am (children arriving after this time will be marked as ‘late’)
The end of the day is at 3.15pm.
Total minimum hours per day – 6 hours 30 minutes
Total minimum hours per week – 32.5 hours
