Calendar

INSET days

Five days are set aside each year for teacher training purposes. The Welsh Assembly Government has given every school in Wales an extra Inset day, to be taken in the Summer Term, for the next three years. This is to give schools time to prepare for the new curriculum.

These are days taken from school holidays and not teaching days. Parents are informed in advance of these dates. 

One of the 6 days is an opportunity to work in partnership alongside other teachers from other schools at Ysgol Glantaf.

  • INSET Day 2 – Wednesday 29/01/20
  • INSET Day 3 – Wednesday 11/03/20
  • INSET Day 4 – Monday 11/05/20
  • INSET Day 5 – Monday 01/06/20
  • INSET Day 6 – Tuesday 02/06/20
