School Recovery 17: School Timetable Update

Tuesday 11th August 2020

Parents/carers should be aware that we are making a structural adaptation to our school timetable.  In effect we are running our normal timetable but over two weeks rather than one week.  Each school day still starts at 8.30am and we have our normal finish time of 3.20pm Monday through Thursday and 12.05pm on Friday.   Each student will continue to access their full curricular experience.

However, instead of squeezing all classes into one week based on a single and double period allocation, we are scheduling all classes across two weeks based on a pattern of double and triple periods. This approach helps support our safe return to school as it creates ‘bigger blocks’ of learning which keeps classes together for longer during the school day.  This, is turn, reduces the frequency of student and staff movement during the school day.

The two week model also helps facilitate the separate break and lunch arrangements we are putting in place for Broad General Education (S1/S2/S3) and Senior Phase (s4/S5/S6) students.  The timings of our day have been updated in the ‘About Us’ section, and thereafter ‘School Day’ link within our website. Click here. In particular, it highlights revised timings for break and lunch for specific year groups.

Students will receive their timetables period 1 on Wednesday, or Thursday, depending upon their return date.
