Dear Parents

 Thank you to all who contributed about our recent proposal to adjust the school day and school calendar and introduce a two-week half-term break in the autumn term. We have decided to go ahead on a pilot basis for the academic year 2023-24. We will adjust the term dates on our website and will update you further about adjustments to the school day. We know, however, that some parents asked to know as soon as possible about dates – the autumn term break in 2023 will be 23 October – 3 November. We will review this before deciding on future years. Overall, there was a majority of parents who responded in favour of the proposal. We are looking carefully at those who did not agree with the proposal and will look at what opportunities there may be to promote half-term activities.

Best wishes

Kev Geall

Head of school
