School starts each day at 8:45am with form time and a nurture breakfast. As many of our students have to travel a long distance to get to SLCA, we make sure that they are starting the day with a full stomach, offering toast and toppings and sugar-free squash or milk for breakfast.
School ends at 2:45pm from Monday to Thursday. On Friday school ends at 1:00pm. Taxi’s arrive to collect students from each centre, and staff ensure that students are safely on the correct transport.
Students have 30 minutes for lunch each day, and this is staggered in each centre to allow for students of different ages getting lunches safely and confidently.
Lessons are split into double periods – this is to allow for practical subjects such as food technology and swimming. Each class teacher will arrange for their class to have a 15 minute break in the morning – this is decided by the teacher and happens when it is most appropriate to the class, rather than at a set time.
