As part of the Scottish Negotiating Committee for Teachers’ pay negotiations, agreement was reached that two additional in-service days would be granted during schools session 2019/20. Following discussion with the Primary Head Teacher Executive, Secondary Head Teachers, Professional Associations and also with SEIC local authority representatives, it has been agreed that the two additional dates will be as follows:
The first additional day will be Monday 21 October 2019. This date is already in our East Lothian calendar as a local in-service day so this will be moved to Tuesday 22 October 2019, thereby resulting in two consecutive In-service days. The second additional day will be Tuesday 7 January 2020.
Please note an amended school session dates calendar will be issued in due course to reflect these additional days. This will also be posted on the Council website.
