Parkend Primary School

School Times

As you may have seen, the Government announced earlier this year 2023 that they intend to introduce a minimum school day length for all schools in the country. They expect all schools in England to be open for a minimum of 32 hours and 30 minutes a week from September2023. For context, this is how our current school week looks.
