In-depth article
Can we put a pupil on a part-time timetable? The DfE says that part-time timetables, also known as reduced timetables, can be used only in exceptional circumstances. We look at guidance from 2 LAs and cite advice on part-time education for reception-age pupils, pupils with SEN and Travellers.
