Timetables

I'm seeing lots of requests out there for samples of timetables, especially for parents trying to school at home - which can be particularly challenge if you are also working from home. There isn't a single answer to timetabling, every child and every parent is different and there's no magic system that will work for everyone. 


For what it's worth, my advice is this:

  1. Design a system to try for your household - you might do this from scratch or use someone else's template (there are some below).

  2. Involve your kids/partner in the design - they may come up with things you haven't thought of and they'll be more willing to follow the plan if they've invested in it.

  3. Don't stress if you miss something, overrun, or give up one day altogether, nobody's perfect.

  4. If it's not working, rethink (I do this weekly!). 

  5. Don't get hung up on the idea that other people are doing it all better than you. That they are more creative, organised and competent or tidier and have better behaved children! You can only do you and that is enough.

KS2 - Example of a Normal Primary School Day

This is an example to show you what a typical school day at KS2 in an English primary school might look like. It is from my own child's school. You cannot follow this at home, it would not be realistic, but you might like to have an idea of what sort of shape your child's week might normally take. (The button is for the colour version but there's a black and white one here.)

KS2 - Actual Primary School Timetable Adapted for School at Home

This is the way I adapted the school's timetable in the first weeks of lockdown. It was still too tight for us and a lot of lessons overran or got scrapped. It might work for you however, especially if you need a fairly tight schedule to accompany homeworking.

KS2 - School At Home Timetable

I've stuck to a basic school day structure because the other members of our household have schedules they need to keep to so it suits us at the moment.
