    Having notices that next year (summer 2012) our dates show the following
    May 4th = voting day (school closed to children)
    May 7th = May day (school closed to all)
    Our aim would be to organise an INSET on the 5th but work as a twilight so we gain a long weekend - both staff, parents and pupils would benefit from this.
    My question is, as we have 2 long parents evenings (3:50 until 7) over two nights in the Spring term, could these extra hours be classed as twilights ......... I'm not sure if this would count? Should a twilight be an extension of staff meeting time? We don't actually have staff meetings in the week when its parents evening anyhow...... and this equates to 6 hours extra for staff in one week (this occurs in October too for the first parents evening of the year)
    Your advice would be well received - thanks
