What are inset days?
An inset day (an abbreviation of in-service training day), is one of a series of five days in most schools in the United Kingdom on which teaching sessions are not run and the pupils do not attend school. The staff are required to attend (on the day or in sessions twilighted accordingly) for training or to complete administrative tasks. Teachers can catch up with work and also have the opportunity to train for any new technology or new ways of doing things within the school.
INSET days have always occurred in some form (previously referred to as Baker days or considered as part of pupil holidays), however schools are now required to state when these sessions occur.
