When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

The Joy of Inset Days!

Inset days

Today is an inset day at my daughter’s school, so what will we be doing today:

  • Snuggling on the all together
  • Watching films
  • Generally chillaxing
  • Talking

Now don’t get me wrong this quality time together is much needed and very much wanted, however why do we need an inset day smack in the middle of the term?

Having been a working single mum with my daughter previously these rogue inset days not only were a logistical nightmare to organise but I could never understand why they had to be smack in the middle of term?

Now Beth returned after the Christmas break on the 4th January  this means this inset day is taking place after only 4 weeks after returning and a mere 9 school days before she breaks up for yet another week of holiday!

Why?

Don’t get me wrong I am not grumbling over inset days nor the fact there are a lot of school holidays, what really aggrieves me is the fact they stick a random day in instead of attaching it to the beginning or the end of the term!

Now being a stay at home parent at the moment these rogue inset days don’t really affect me, however I know the stress it brings to working parents!

As parents we are aware of how important maintaining the routine of school is and we ensure we send our children come hell or high water. Why do schools not also  think this is important?

Oh well quality time for us here we come …
