I am new to the whole "school" thing and just had our dates for the year - I vaguely understand the concept of Inset Days and realise that ds won't be in school then. But what about Occasional and Take Over Days? Can someone please enlighten me as to what they are and whether ds is in school then!
I think that Take Over Days are when the children plan their own learning for a day, so they will be in school but doing different things. And I think that Occasional Days is a blanket heading for "closed days other than school holidays" so would cover both inset days and closures for other reasons (e.g. school being used as a polling station), so they wouldn't be in school. But I'm not sure.
