There can’t be enough of having rest

The ambiguous proposal was sent to parents of 400 students who attend the Primary School Ashbу Fields in the Daventry, Northamptonshire. In a letter sent to parents, was made an offer to let students go home earlier on Fridays so that the teachers could relax and gain strength before the new educational week. Not all parents were happy about the decision of the school administration, many consider this step unacceptable. The school principal offers to finish the last school day of the week at 13:15, when the majority parents are at work. According to the school's leadership, teachers need more time to maintain a healthy balance between work and personal life. Parents expressed their dissatisfaction in this regard, as they will have to leave work earlier or hire a nanny for the child.

Kellу Holmes, whose daughter goes to this school, said: "What will they do with children whose parents work full-time? If we count, then fourteen days a year our children will lose valuable educational time because teachers want to rest more". Another father added: "Do teachers need more time to rest? That is ridiculous. Most parents work according to the usual schedule - 8-10 hours a day, and no one gives them such indulgences. These teachers need to be returned to reality, so that they understand how lucky they are".

The principal says that hiring and retaining highly qualified teachers is a national problem that directly affects not only the education of children but also their well-being and confidence. Teachers have a huge workload, because they work 60 hours per week on average. A letter for parents said: "Many teachers despite their love for this, cannot cope with the workload and maintain a healthy balance between work and personal life". For this reason, the school proposes to reduce the school day on Friday by at least two hours. In addition, the principal added: "We strive to improve our school, including improving the quality of teaching and learning in school, to meet the needs of our students and invest in our employees. One of the options for improvement, in our opinion, is a review of the structure of the school week. Shortened school day on Friday will allow our staff to develop and improve teaching skills. Before making a final decision, we thoroughly discuss it with parents."
