Teacher Only Days in 2020
As part of the Education Accord, signed as part of the settlement of the Primary Teachers and Primary Principals
collective agreements, a provision for eight additional teacher only days over three years was created. These days are
to be used for, among other things, teachers to work through the proposed changes to the assessment of progress
and achievement across the curriculum. Here at Laingholm Primary School we will use the following two days in
2020 to address this work.
• Friday 29th May
• Friday 23rd October
