On Tuesday 7 January 2020 school will be closed to pupils to enable a whole school INSET.  I apologise for introducing an additional INSET during the year, but we have an excellent opportunity to work alongside Oakfield Academy with training from the Educational Psychology Service.

It is not possible for all staff to access this without closing to pupils and this is not a decision we have taken without great consideration.  We hope that by adding the day to the start of term and extending the Christmas break we will avoid the disruption that a mid-term / mid-week INSET might bring.

We will therefore be closed to pupils on Monday 6 January 2020 (as previously planned) and on Tuesday 7 January 2020 (to accommodate our extra training opportunity across both academies).

Pupils will return on Wednesday 8 January 2020.
