End of school day

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by wilmslow-girl, Mar 21, 2011.

  1. I would value your thoughts on the following.
    How early would you expect to see a class tidying away, or do you expect to see teachers, teaching until the very end of the day?

    I think it is important for children to learn good 'house-keeping' skills to show they are part of the school and have ownership of their surroundings. It is the teacher's job to ensure that this is well organised and managed so that it is efficient and effective use of time for all. Having a timed piece of music etc is one way of keeping it on task/time.

    We often start to tidy away at 3pm for a 3.20 finish, particularly on a Friday when we have homwework, spellings, newsletters and countless other things to give out. We can then give out any certificates and hopefully have a story. This is Y1/2.

    Why do you ask; are you a parent?
