POLICY: INSET

There may be ‘essential’ INSET provision in special circumstances e.g.

New GCSE and Post 16 Specifications or other initiatives


The introduction of new courses into the school’s curriculum
Obtaining of specific certificates, e.g. in first-aid

Preparation
When granted an inset, staff are expected to leave appropriate cover work with HOF or 2 i/c
and mark the work the students do. If the staff are out on a homework day, they are expected
to set homework and mark it on their return.

Threshold/CLT
Staff are expected to keep a copy of all insets attended as a contribution of evidence required
for performance management and chartered London teacher status

As a general rule,

• Following their attendance at any INSET activity, the staff are required to disseminate
any relevant information to their colleagues at a subsequent staff, faculty or year meeting
or by some other means.
• Complete an inset evaluation form to report on the objectives and acquired skills,
knowledge and understanding of the course. *

* Failure to complete an inset evaluation form would result in refusal of future applications.

Note:

1. In the case of multiple applications for a course or day a selection will be made based
on staff professional needs.
2. In the case of refusal of application staff can appeal to the Director of the Collegiate
Schools.
