Scrapping The Timetable at Hook

Description

Hook Primary in Yorkshire, has discarded timetables and bells in favour of a more self-directed and creative approach to the working day, and the results couldn't be better.

 

This programme follows the children's activities throughout the school day and finds out from both experienced teachers and an NQT what it's like to work in a school like Hook.

The children go out to play when they have completed a task or need a break from their work - not arbitrarily when the bell goes. The classrooms have no doors, the children work quietly yet there is a buzz of activity.

And although the school has never followed the literacy or numeracy hours, their most recent Ofsted report was outstanding.
