Action for schools: Deliver a school week of at least 32.5 hours by September 2024
In the Schools White Paper (published in March 2022), the government announced that in order to give every pupil the opportunity to achieve their full academic potential, all mainstream, state-funded schools would be expected to deliver a minimum school week of 32.5 hours.
Schools are reminded that the deadline to implement the minimum school week is September 2024. Guidance and case studies are available to support schools that are not yet meeting the minimum expectation.
