Consultation proposal

Re: Consultation on the length of the school day at Sirius Academy North

I would like your views on our proposal to modify the school day slightly following the adaptations made during the last two years. The changes would be effective from September 2022. The proposal is to remove the staggered start and end time so that each year group would begin at the same time, (8:35am) with the exception of Year 11 (8:40am). Years 7 to 10 will still finish at 3:05pm.

Lesson 7, for Year 11, will remain, although will finish at the earlier time of 3:45pm. Lesson 7 has been a highly successful catch up strategy over the last two years.

There is no change to the length or number of lessons. The current and proposed times are as follows:

The consultation opens today and closes on Friday 10th June 2022. Responses will be considered throughout the consultation period and a final decision will be communicated to staff, students and Parents/Carers on Monday 13th June 2022. If the proposals are agreed, it will allow a period of 13 weeks before the new arrangements come into operation. 

Feedback on the proposals should be emailed to [email protected]

Yours sincerely
Mr Ravenscroft
Head of School
