Times, Terms and Balance: SAE's approach to day and term length.

SAE recognises the pedagogical, health and social benefits of a relatively short school week for the youngest children.

  • Children under five can access school all day every day but are able to attend for only 3 days a week and are able to go home at 14:00 every afternoon.
  • Kindergarten age children can access afternoon school every day but are able to go home at 14:00 every afternoon.
  • Children in class 1 and 2 (Years 2 and 3) can access afternoon school but are able to go home at 14:00 on Wednesday and Friday

SAE recognises the pedagogical, health and social benefits of a relatively longer school week for older children.

  • Children in classes 3-10 (Years 4-11) are expected to attend school all day every day.

SAE aims to keep half-term length to a maximum of 7 weeks, with the ideal being 6 weeks.
