Allocation of INSET/CPD Training Time
Nationally, all schools and academies that follow the ‘School Teachers Pay and Conditions’, require teachers to be available to work for 195 days. On 5 of the 195 days, teachers cannot be directed to teach. These days are commonly known as INSET, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) or Training days.
Here at Mayfield, we usually disaggregate one or more of our five days and use that gained time to close for Period 5 on selected Tuesdays. We do this so that we can have more regular training that does not disrupt whole days of learning.
Often, but not always, our teachers work collaboratively with Oasis Lord’s Hill and Oasis Sholing on common development priorities during these training times/days.
We do try really hard not to move or change these days once published so that you can plan your childcare accordingly, but sometimes this is unavoidable. We will always give you as much notice as possible if we do ever need to change plans.
I hope this has answered any questions you may have had but please feel free to contact the academy via telephone 023 8032 8128 / email: [email protected], or attend any of the Parent Group Meetings, if you have any feedback that you feel would be useful to us or any questions you still have about the academy.
