The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

Petham Term Dates 2021/2022


What are INSET days?  INSET stands for In Service Training. All schools in England have five INSET days every year when they are closed to pupils to allow for staff training. They are an important part of staff training and development, ensuring that staff stay up to date with latest developments and so education in our school remains ‘cutting edge’.

We have 5 inset days during the year when the children will not be in school:

2020-21 INSET Days:  1st & 2nd September 2020, 2nd November 2020, 1st April 2021  and 25th June 2021

2021-22 INSET Days:  1st September 2021, 1st November 2021, 4th & 5th January 2022 and 27th May 2022
