The early May bank holiday in 2020 will move from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day which takes place on 8 May, and to enable people to pay tribute to those who served in one of the most significant events in our country’s history, Business Secretary Greg Clark announced on 07 June 2019.

Only the second time ever that the early May bank holiday has been moved – the first was in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of VE Day

The occasion will remember the contribution of British, Commonwealth and Allied armed forces personnel; those who contributed to the war effort and safeguarded the Home Front. As well as marking the Allies’ victory in 1945, the bank holiday will serve as an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have served and continue to serve in the UK Armed Forces and their families.

Dear Head Teacher/SENCO

Many thanks to those of you who have reported part-time timetables using the paperwork provided.

There remain a number of schools that have not yet responded though. As I have indicated previously, OFSTED are focussing on the arrangements that local authorities have in relation to part-time time-tables and the lack of a suitable process is likely to contribute towards a, ‘requires improvement’ finding in a school OFSTED inspection.

A deadline date of 15 June 2019 was provided. I am extending this to the 30 June 2019 for those schools who have not yet been able to respond. Please can you give some priority to this over the next week or two?

PLEASE REMEMBER – If you do not have any pupils on a PTTT, it is important that you provide a nil return to indicate this.

Kind Regards

Ann Lowe
Head of Service

We are having a key stage one data day. This will be an opportunity for senior leaders to analyse their key stage one data and work with the local authority data team and school improvement team. It will be specifically useful for infant schools who do not attend data day on the 9 July 2019. It is a drop in session but if you could inform us at if you intend to attend that would be useful.

The session is at Sans Souci from 10am to 2pm on the 2nd July 2019
