Monday 7th of January is an Inset day, and the school will be closed.
There are 4-5 Inset days during each academic year. These days are a chance for the school’s staff team to report back and evaluate the progress being made on various teaching initiatives and programmes. It is an opportunity to check that targets, set by Ofsted, the Department of Education or by the school itself are being met.
The days involve team-building, training workshops, presentations as well as briefings on new educational standards.
