As of September 2024, the DfE expects that all maintained schools offer a minimum of 32.5 hours per week in school for children. This includes break and lunch times as well as teaching time and enrichment activities but does not apply to optional pre-school or after school activities. This works out as 6.5 hours per school day. This is currently the offer at St. Andrew’s School.
