Letter for Parents of Reception Children 2021

The following letter outlines key dates for children starting in Reception in September 2021.


28th June 2021

Dear Parents,

INSET and Term Dates for 2021 – 2022

Please find the dates for the next academic year (2021-2022).

You will notice that there are three INSET days in September 2021 and that this is in contrast to the usual pattern.

On this occasion, in order to get the best quality training providers for our staff (and to therefore benefit the children) in the areas that we are looking to develop in particular next year (Physical Education and Writing) amongst others, I have had to change the usual pattern of training to ensure that this can take place. Therefore, there will be three INSET days in September and a final two INSET days in July 2022. There will be no other INSET days in between. Thank you for your understanding.

Dates for 2021-2022 for children in Reception:
