Consultation on changes to the school day

26th June 2018

We would like to take on board your views before putting in place any changes for September.  This change will be for both Lowick and Holy Island First Schools as we share staff across both sites and need to ensure consistency.

Our proposed change is to extend our school day so that we finish at 3pm rather than 2.40pm.

Rationale:  This will ensure that we have enough teaching time in the school day to deliver a suitably broad and balanced curriculum for our older children in line with national expectations.

Our younger children already have enough teaching time in the school day, so it is proposed that they would have an afternoon break time to compensate.  That way all children in school will finish at the same time.

 If you have any feedback on the above proposal; please complete the form below and return to school by 12pm Wednesday 11th July 2018.  Your responses can be on paper (see document below) or via email to
