All schools maintained by the local authority and special schools not maintained by the local
authority are required to:

  • Meet for at least 380 sessions or 190 days during any school year to educate their pupils.
  • Operate two sessions on every school day divided by a break in the middle of the day.
  • In addition, schools will be expected to provide a compulsory school week of at least 32.5 hours.

NCJPS exceeds the Government's expectations and offers our children 33.75 hours per week. However, due to religious reasons, we close early on a Friday during the winter months.  Aggregated across the year we still exceed the recommended number of hours.
