Introduction of an extra lunch sitting from Monday 30th November 2015
Due to increased student numbers we have been reviewing our arrangements for lunch times to allow our students more time to enjoy their lunch. The proposed changes do not alter the amount of learning time or unstructured time for our students; the start and end of the day remain the same.
Currently all 7 year groups (Years 7-13) have lunch at the same time 12.25 pm – 1.05 pm. As you can imagine that is a great number of students to use the canteen facilities in a short space of time.
From Monday 30th November the academy will introduce a ‘split lunchtime’ with students taking split lunches between 12.25 pm and 2.05 pm. Years 7, 8, 12 & 13 will take the first lunch slot (12:25pm – 1:05pm) and Years 9, 10 & 11 will take the second lunch slot (1:25pm – 2:05pm). In the 20 min slot in between lunch slots canteen staff will have an opportunity to restock and replenish ready for the second lunch slot.
The day will run as normal for periods 1, 2 and 3 and break will remain from 11.05 to 11.25 when students can access a range of snacks and hot food from the canteen.
At 2:05pm all students will begin P5 as usual with the day ending at 3:05pm.
The timings for the day for each year group are as follows:
The changes to the structure of the school day will commence on Monday 30th November. The effectiveness of the change will be reviewed after the Christmas break.
