Throughout the year we sometimes have weather that is wet, windy or cold (or even all of these combined).
In a normal week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday have a 40 minute lunch break whereas Tuesday and Thursday have a 60 minute lunch break.
When the weather is bad, we sometimes reduce the lunch break on a Tuesday and Thursday to 40 minutes so students are not exposed to the elements for long.
This means the period 5 class ends at 2.40 pm on these occasions.
Students are able to leave the school grounds at this time but are also able to go to the library to wait for buses or pick ups.
Sometimes the hall is also available after school as a warm, dry waiting area.
When a shortened lunchtime decision has been made, staff and students are advised as soon as possible.
