The School Day and Year (England)

Speaking at an education conference in London, Mr Gove said: "It is already the case that some of the best schools in the country recognise the need to change the structure of the school term. "It's also the case that some of the best schools in the country recognise that we need to have a longer school day as well." He argued that a longer school day would also be more family- friendly and "consistent with the pressures of a modern society". "I remember half term in October when I was at school in Aberdeen was called the tattie holiday, the period when kids would go to the fields to pick potatoes.

there are also adverse selection issues where those who may benefit the most – often the most deprived – would not attend. We suggest that it does so via an extended day premium, distributed on a per pupil basis, which schools can opt into receiving on the condition that they then run a longer day and which is mandatory for pupils within that school. Such a decision, with associated funding, would be analogous to opting in to Academy status.

Comparison of school day eating behaviours of 8–11 year old children from Adelaide, South Australia, and London, England

Comparison of school day eating behaviours of 8–11 year old children from Adelaide, South Australia, and London, England

are eligible for a free school meal, with 85% of families electing for children to receive a school provided meal rather than providing a packed lunch [23]. Beyond the age of seven, parents have to pay approximately £2 pounds/AU$3.50 per day, and the uptake in school lunches varies from 34 to 99 percent [23]. In Australia, school meals are not provided and most children bring a packed lunch to school [6,24], but may purchase food from a school canteen. The school canteen or tuckshop can provide children with a snack, lunch or drink. The foods provided in these canteens are based on the Australia dietary guidelines and each State/Territory has their own polices [7]. The South Australian ―Right Bite‖ canteen guidelines which were rolled out in 2008, utilise a traffic light system, whereby red foods that are high in fat, salt and sugars (i.e sugary drinks, confectionary deep fried foods, savoury snack foods etc) are restricted from sale in canteens, and amber foods (i.e. processed meats, savoury commercial products such as meat patties or sausages, full-fat dairy) are recommended to be limited [25]. Notably, beyond the banning of the red foods, individual schools are able to decide how they implement the guidelines and compliance is not monitored [26]. The food policies applied to Schools in England are quite similar, however policies apply to the school meal that children receive at school. The school meal must provide fruit and vegetables, with adequate provision of dairy, low fat protein, and low fat starchy foods. Similar to schools in South Australia, foods high in fats and sugars are restricted [7]. Thus comparison of children’s food intake within these differing school food provision practices can provide insights for intervention targets and improving nutrition policy. This paper utilises data from two studies conducted in Australia and England, providing a unique opportunity to more directly compare findings across two countries with different school food provision policies. The aim of this study was to compare school day food intake and breakfast, lunch and family meal habits, in children from Australia and England.

The school day and year

For foundation, voluntary aided and foundation special schools, the governing body determines all these, and for community, voluntary controlled, community special schools and maintained nursery schools, the governing body determines the times of school sessions (with the local education authority determining the dates of the school terms and holidays). However where a local education authority considers that a change in any maintained school's session times is necessary or expedient to promote the use of sustainable modes of travel or to improve the efficiency or effectiveness of its travel arrangements, it can determine the time the school's first session begins and its second session ends (or if there is only one session, its start and end).

Is the Four-Day School Week Detrimental to and Student Success?

Is the Four-Day School Week Detrimental to and Student Success?

The traditional school year in America’s public schools is approximately 180 days, which typically follows an agrarian calendar. Many in the educational field believe that the conventional school year met the needs of the 19 th century farmer (Davis & Farbman, 2004; Gold, 2002; National Education Commission on Time and Learning, 1994). Other literature stated the school calendar in America allowed students to vacate the urban areas during the heat of the summer (Gold, 2002). Whatever the initial causes were, the calendar in the American education system has been fairly consistent across all 50 states (Gold, 2002). Despite recent pushes by educational groups to add more hours to the school day and/or add days to the school year, this traditional format of a five-day week for 180 days is not likely to change (Chen, 2007).

A Case Study: Transitioning From A Five-Day School Week To A Four-Day School Week

A Case Study: Transitioning From A Five-Day School Week To A Four-Day School Week

The four-day school week is not popular with some individuals; they believe students need to be in school more time or days, not less. Some educators, parents, and politicians believe school should be five days a week and year round (Chen, 2008). There has been some concern by superintendents that the benefits the school districts were expecting to happen with a four-day school week did not materialize. One of the concerns mentioned was the school did not experience additional productive class time and there was no increase in student test scores. The financial savings are not substantial enough or did not meet the project saving anticipated going into the four-day school week. Several schools experienced teacher and student burnout by the end of the day of the longer school day, which created an unproductive learning time. In Arkansas, one district returned to the five day a week schedule after six years of being on the four-day schedule (Delisio, 2006). The disadvantages were outweighing the advantages and the schedule was taking a toll on the students (Delisio, 2006).

Doctoral School Day in Public Health

Methods: The SarcoPhAge (for Sarcopenia and Physical Impairment with advancing Age) project includes 534 older subjects. Sarcopenia was clinically defined as low muscle mass plus low grip strength and/or decreased physical performance, and variations were ob- served between cut-off limits of each component for 5 operational definitions. Data on adverse outcomes were collected yearly during a visit or a phone call. The association between sarcopenia and the oc- currence of outcomes was tested using Cox hazards model, when survival data were available. If not, this was tested using logistic re- gression model. The scenario was repeated for each definition. Results: Five hundred thirty-four subjects were recruited into this pro- spective study (73.5±6.2 years, 60.5% female). After 3 years of follow- up, data were then available for 501 subjects. If no association between baseline sarcopenia and physical disabilities or institutionalisations was highlighted, a higher number of deaths occurred in individuals with sarcopenia than in those healthy (16.2% versus 4.6%, p-value<0.001) for the European Working Group on Sarcopenia in Older People (EWG- SOP) definition. The 3-year probability of death when presenting sarco- penia showed an approximately 3-fold increase compared to subjects without (4 out 5 definitions). A longer duration of hospital stay was observed in subjects with sarcopenia when defined using the EWGSOP or by the Asian Group, but no association was observed between sarco- penia and falls or fractures.

School-Age Care Guidance and FAQ for School Year

School-Age Care Guidance and FAQ for School Year

Fees can be charged for care for children beyond Tier I workers or for any care provided beyond the typical school hours based on your district’s current fee-based model and as capacity, staff and facilities allow given that you must follow MDH health and safety regulations. If the district has capacity to serve more than the children of Tier I workers during the school day during hybrid or distance learning models, this should be done on a sliding fee basis, and utilizing publicly available funding to help make it affordable for families. To the extent possible, priority should be given to those most underserved families in your communities, particularly those receiving free or reduced-price meals.

Timetabling, with other developments occurring simultaneously, most notably the roll-out of Office 365 to students, with subsequent plans to roll out to staff. Recognising this, the decision has been taken to instigate a working group to explore our areas of need, and propose a way forward. This will likely propose a business case to the University planning round in 2014/15 for a project commencing later in the year to raise the level of provision. System block diagram

conventional programs that serve school breakfast before the start of the school day.

Conventional wisdom tells us that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Research shows that students benefit from eating breakfast in two primary ways. First, eating breakfast, particularly meals provided through the federal School Breakfast Program, has a positive effect on students’ overall dietary health. 1 Second, there is significant evidence that eating breakfast has a positive effect on academics. Where there are robust school breakfast programs, students experience improvements in standardized test scores, school attendance, and other outcomes that help create positive learning environments.
