Staff Development Days

Children are in school for 190 days a year and teachers for 195 days a year. The additional five days are for staff training. These can either be whole day training sessions when the school is closed to children or Twilight Training sessions, two of which total a Staff Development day. If two Twilights are taken, staff will then have the time off when one Staff Development day has been allocated. At Great Chart we look closely at the term dates to see when we can arrange training. We are also dependent on the availability for some guest speakers and trainers as to when we can arrange our development days. As with other schools, any Twilight Training sessions are in addition to our normal weekly staff meetings.
