  3. Longer School Days Being Proposed For Next Year

Longer School Days Being Proposed For Next Year

Other

warning rant alert. I got a message from school today saying that next year school opens 10minuits earlier and closes 20minuits later. I just hope all those who had the chance to home school their children and missed it are happy. My 3 did a full day's schoolwork every day they were supposed to. I know some parents were working from home but others didn't.

It’s the school staff I feel sorry for. No doubt they will have to work longer for no extra pay.

Pjran I agree, I cant believe the School is allowed to alter the day quite so dramatically, what if staff members have their own families, or arrangements around dropping their own children off/collecting at the end of the day!

I can not see personally as a problem especially at the end of the day, so many parents turn up late for their kids anyway and the early ones stand around chatting until 4pm.

For the purposes of giving them a chance after the disruption of covid I'd do so many things which people will probably have a problem with .

For starters I'd say for the next 3-4 years scrap all teacher training days or days where they have inset days or anything where they are not in classrooms .

In the same scenario I would not have the half terms and just go for the bing 2 week holidays with the exception of the summer holidays but I'd change that to 4 weeks rather than 6 weeks .

To boost numbers of teachers I'd not only do the bursarys which they scrapped for healthcare workers and do the same with teachers or people working in the education industry will not go to Uni and come out with 10's of thousands of pounds worth of debt .

I'm guessing you don't have kids and not a teacher

An extra half an hour a day isn't going to do any harm. On the other hand, it still isn't fair on all of the kids, parents and teachers who have worked hard during the lockdowns. I imagine it was very stressful at times.

Nothing like that from our school yet. Hopefully they won't do it, but they might just send the message really late. As for decision, it's stupid. Kids spend too much time at school, come home tired and then they still have to do homework. Making the day longer will not reduce homework. so they will have to sleep less... They would better get read of all those assemblies, tutor time when most of the kids do nothing and all those inserts, training and wellbeing days...

I definitely agree that assembles are a waste of time kids don't listen anyway

My daughter in law is a teacher and says she’s not been told this yet. Maybe it’s area related.

I understad they are trying to catch them up but their just kids and its not fair on those who did do all the work. They should just have those who didnt do school work stay a little extra
