Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd of September are Inset days, and the school will be closed. Term 1 starts on Thursday 3rd September.
The next Inset Day will be on Monday 2nd November.
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.
