The School Day

Arrival

Students will arrive to school between 8.15 and 8.30am and will be dropped off at the rear gate, via Kings Lane. At 8.30am, the gate will be shut and the students will be walked down to the main school by a member of staff. They will be registered at reception before heading off to tutor time. 

Lessons

Lessons are 50 minutes long and there are 6 lessons a day, adding up to 30 lessons a week. In keeping with the calm environment we provide, there will be no bells. Lessons end at the reasonable discretion of the teacher, enabling a calm ending to lessons. 

Break and Lunch

First break is scheduled at the same time for the whole school and is 20 minutes long. Fruit will be provided during first break. Lunch is staggered for KS2 (years 4-6) and KS3-4 (years 7-11), enabling students to relax and play with children their own age. 

Book Club

Book Club is scheduled at the same time for the whole school every day. At The Levels School, we recognise creativity as one of the superpowers of dyslexia. We want to fire our students' imagination and promote a lifelong love of learning. During Book Club, students will get an opportunity to engage with a diverse range of stories in a range of ways. We will use audiobooks, group reading, film clips, discussions and storyboards to empower all children to be able to access books. 

Clubs

After-school clubs will be on offer to students between 3.30 - 4.15pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for KS2 and Monday through Thursday for KS3 and 4. These are still to be confirmed, but we hope to offer a rich variety of extracurricular activities, including creative and performing arts, science, games and sport. Study rooms will also be available for KS4 students. 

All clubs are optional We are a family orientated school and as such advocate time for students to have down time at home with their families. We are aware that many of our students are vulnerable and anxious about their education. Close contact with home is a support for many of them. 

Year 10/11 will be encouraged to remain in school to complete private study as well as extracurricular activities in Arts/Music/Sport etc. However, we recognise the need for flexibility and will tailor bespoke timetables to suit the individual.

Part-Time Timetables

We recognise that part-time timetables are a vital way of accessing education for many students. Our students are working incredibly hard throughout the day to focus on their studies using strategies to overcome poor working memory, sensory overload and slow processing. Even with specialist strategies put in place, the cumulative effect of all of these difficulties can lead to exhaustion. Our proposed school day is intended to provide flexibility to allow us to offer a bespoke provision tailored to each student – e.g. shorter days for those that need it, along with many opportunities to excel through extracurricular activities such as the creative and performing arts, science, games and sport. The aim of a part-time timetable is to gradually build to a full-time timetable as and when the student is ready.
