Cancellation of INSET Day - 25th January 2021
Cancellation of INSET Day Monday 25th January 2021
Dear Parents and Carers,
Towards the end of the Autumn Term, the DfE announced that schools could take an additional Inset Day allowing staff to plan, prepare and assess, and to provide some rest time after a rather fraught term. With less than one week’s notice, this was suggested to take place on the 18th December. We did not believe that this was sufficient notice for teachers or for pupils and so an Inset day was scheduled by the Trust for Monday 25th January. This was advertised in our December Newsletter.
With the country in another National Lockdown and schools opening for the Key worker children in our community, we do not feel it is appropriate for the Inset Day to remain. We feel it is a moral obligation to remain open so that we can support Key Worker families in the national effort against Covid 19. This means that school will still be setting remote learning and the school will be operating as currently normal - whatever normal is! Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in contact.
