Nottingham Academy moves to a five period day from Thursday 6th September when pupils return. The Academy Day begins at 8.30am.

A reminder for pupils and parents, changes to the Academy day will be implemented across the Secondary phase (Greenwood Campus and Ransom Road Campus) from September 2018.

There is no change to the Academy day in the Primary phase.

A summary of the change is detailed below.

Staff CPD on Mondays

  • The Academy day will start earlier at 8.30am and end earlier at 2.40pm.
  • The Academy will move from a 6 period day (6 periods of 50 minutes) to a 5 period day (5 periods of 60 minutes).  The total time in lessons will remain the same.
  • Tutor time will be reduced to a 10 minute registration/form time.  An additional lesson of PSHE/Citizenship will be timetabled.
  • Lunchtime will reduce from 50 minutes to 40 minutes.
  • An additional period of training/continuing professional development will be in place for all staff on a Monday. 
  • We expect a significant increase in enrichment and intervention between 2.40pm and 4.00pm from Tuesday to Friday. 

* R10 is a sanction where pupils are detained at the end of the Academy day to allow a restorative conversation to take place, following an incidence of poor behaviour. This will not impact the significant majority of pupils who meet Academy standards impeccably.
