Teachers in Local Authority schools have five days each year when they work in school without the children present. These ‘In Service Training’ days are called ‘INSET days’ for short.

Academy schools can determine their own number of inset days.

The inset days we’ve been told about are listed here. We suggest you also check with the individual school.

There are a few schools that also set their own term dates calendar – please check with your individual school.
