The School day

School Opening Hours

At Ardley Hill we deliver a 37.5 hour week (37 EYFS) for 190 days a year.

The government has set a minimum expectation of 32.5 hours a week, 190 days per year, which includes the time in each day from the official start of the school day (i.e. morning registration) to the official end to the compulsory school day (i.e. official home time). The 32.5 hour minimum includes breaks and lunch times as well as teaching time and any extra-curricular activities that all pupils are expected to attend. It does not include optional before or after school provision.
