The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

What are INSET days?  INSET stands for In Service Training. All schools in England have five INSET days every year when they are closed to pupils to allow for staff training. They are an important part of staff training and development, ensuring that staff stay up to date with latest developments and so education in our school remains ‘cutting edge’.

We have 5 inset days during the year when the children will not be in school:

2018-19 INSET Days: 3rd September 2018, 17th, 18th 19th, October 2018 and 24th June 2019
