Teachers are required to undertake five professional learning days during the school year. Some of these days are for mandatory training such as health & safety and safeguarding and other days are for teaching and pedagogy development. An additional day has been provided to schools this year as we develop and embed the new Curriculum for Wales. The dates for this year’s professional learning days are listed below. We will inform you of the sixth day as soon as possible.
On these days, the school is closed to pupils.
