Message to parents and carers on the change to May in-service day for school year 2020-2021

A message on the change to this year's May in-service day from Gordon McKinlay, Head of Schools. It is dated Wednesday 10 February 2021.

Dear Parent or Carer

I wanted to advise you of a change to the school holiday arrangements for this school year.

Following consultation with teachers and union representatives, we have agreed to move the in-service day in May from Tuesday 4 May to Thursday 6 May. As you will be aware, Thursday is election day and some of our schools are used as polling stations. By changing the day of the in-service day, pupils in those schools will have the same number of learning and teaching days as schools not used as polling stations.  

Next year's school holiday arrangements already have election day as the in-service day. That date is Thursday 5 May 2022.

You can check the school holidays arrangements on our website.

Yours sincerely

Gordon McKinlay

Head of Schools
