We have the opportunity to select our INSET training days for the next academic year.
I would like to know what you think of taking the five inset days in one week instead of spreading them throughout the year. This will break with tradition and we would not match with other schools in the area.
If we decided to take these as one whole week there is the hope that cheaper holidays can be booked and therefore holidays will not affect our attendance at other times in the year. The days could be added as an extra week to the Whitsun half-term holiday - and give families the chance for up to two weeks holidays at cheaper rates than summer peak times.
Please let me know what you think.

North Wales Police Cyber Crime Team are advising parents to check which Apps and Games their children have installed on their devices and who they are communicating with.
“We are seeing incidents each week where children in North Wales have been contacted via Apps and Games, accepted friend/message requests and freely engaging with people they don’t know and have never met”.
“It’s important parents know what Apps and Games their children are using, that privacy settings are in place, that the child knows how to use the App/Game safely and to feel comfortable to tell their parents about inappropriate communications”.
“Sadly, we are seeing instances of children being contacted and being requested to share nude images and videos and freely doing so. When the incident is reported to Police and officers investigate the incident, its not uncommon to find that the parents had no idea of what Apps/Games the child was using and who they were talking with”.
The internet is a great resource of information and can be a fun and interactive learning environent. Following some simple steps and talking about online safety can prevent the majority of these incidents occurring.
North Wales Police have a large selection of FREE privacy safety checklists and online parental control settings guidance documents available on their website. “We would actively encourage parents and teaching staff to invest time and help safeguard children”.
