South Farnborough Junior School


Change to the School Day

The Governing Body are writing to you as part of a consultation process to make changes to the school day. The changes alongside the rationale for change are set out below. We have consulted with school staff and would like to take on board your views before putting in place any changes for September 2019.

Change Rationale
Removal of afternoon break
  • uninterrupted afternoon of learning
  • allows early closing without any impact of teaching timeĀ 
School will finish 15 minutes earlier at 3.25pm
  • families with children at both SFI school & us will no longer have 40 minute wait between the 2 schools finishing
  • Children who attend clubs will be finishing earlier in the winter months and not leaving in the dark
  • less time in school for the children (equates to 8 school days over the year) without any impact on teaching time

The staff and Governors feel strongly that these changes will have a positive impact on the welfare and education of the children at South Farnborough Junior School. We believe the change will provide the children with an improved learning experience by creating a more balanced school day.

If you would like to share your views, please complete form available to print here. The consultation period will end on Friday 10th May 2019 at 4pm so please respond before the deadline if you wish your views to be considered.

The Governors will meet and consider all responses received in their meeting on Thursday 16th May 2019 and will inform you of the outcome before the May half-term. We look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your continued support.
