Our School Day

Our School Day

The start and end times provided show the duration of the compulsory school day.

From September 2023, the DfE set the expectation that schools provide a minimum school week of 32.5 hours. Oldmixon have always met or exceeded this.


The 32.5 hour minimum expectation 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.

Our school day starts at 8:45 am and the school day finishes at 3:15 pm.
