Dear Parents and Carers
As part of the teachers’ pay settlement, the Deputy First Minister has asked that two additional in-service days, to be held in the academic year 2019-2020, are provided. This means that schools will be closed on two further days to allow staff time to focus on key issues such as workload, additional support and empowerment.
Due to the very tight timescales to arrange this, the normal consultation processes could not be applied.
The additional dates are:
Tuesday 22nd October 2019
Wednesday 8th January 2020
All other dates remain the same. The link to the full dates can be found HERE http://www.edinburgh.gov.uk/info/20074/schools/20/term_dates/2
