New School Day Pattern From 17 August 2016

As you may be aware, all secondary schools in North Lanarkshire will move to a common day pattern from the beginning of the new session in August 2016.

The changes to the pattern for Taylor High are very minor since the model adopted across the authority is very similar to the model already in operation in most of the Motherwell area schools.

Periods will be 50 minutes in duration with a 15-minute interval and 45-minute lunchbreak.

School will begin at 8.55am each day and end at 3.45pm on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday of each week. On Wednesday and Friday, it will end at 2.55pm.

This represents a shift of 5 minutes compared with present arrangements in Taylor as detailed below.
