Before half term we were told that we are to close on 5th May for polling day. We have tied to get out of this, as we know it causes disruption to working parents, but unfortunately we don’t have any choice in this matter- it is a council decision.
My first thought was: BUT THAT IS THE WEEK BEFORE SATS WEEK! We have arranged for staff to be here for year 6, while the rest attend training off site. This means that Year 6 ONLY will be able to come into school and study with teachers for the MORNING ONLY.
Here are the rest of the INSET days for this academic year, and the two at the start of next: (more dates to come for next year soon)
*Monday 11th April *Friday 29th April
*Thursday 5th May -EXCEPT YEAR 6 in for MORNING ONLY-
*Friday 17th June
*Friday 15th July
*Thursday September 1st
*Friday September 2nd
We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. I attach a copy of the letter we received to show that the council acknowledge the late notification of this
