What is an INSET Training Day?

It means the children don't have to come to school, but the rest of the staff do: Teachers, Teaching assistants, Midday Supervisors & Cleaners.


During these days staff have training on important school issues..

-Sometimes it can be about the School Curriculum & what we teach the children.

-Sometimes it can be about improving policies or procedures such as Behaviour.

-Sometimes it can be a legal requirement such as training about Fire, First Aid or Safeguarding.
