Consultation - Change to TGS Secondary Phase Wednesday Timings from September 2018

Dear Parents and Carers,

From September 2018, Secondary Phase students (Year 7-11) will finish school every Wednesday at 3.50pm instead of 4.30pm with no House Time between 3.50pm - 4.30pm or student clubs/activities taking place between 4.30pm - 5.30pm. The school may still use this time for Year 11 Intervention if and when required throughout the year. The time gained from the earlier finish every Wednesday will be used by Secondary Phase Teachers and Teaching Assistants for training and development. At present, the Secondary Phase extended day finish does not permit time for quality staff training.

Consultation for this change will open today Tuesday 19th June and close on Friday 29th June. Responses will be considered throughout the consultation period and a final decision will be communicated to staff, students and parents/carers on Thursday Friday 6th July 2018.

Feedback on the proposal should be emailed to smitchinson@thegatwickschool.org.uk by Friday 29th June 2018

Kind regards

Mark Roessler, Head of School
