Next Wednesday, my school has a 'teacher training day' so students have the day off. I've made plans with my mates already, but then last Friday my Product Design teacher 'invites' me to attend school on that day to catch up on my coursework which I am behind in. I'll be honest, I don't put a great deal of effort into tech, as you HAD to pick a technology option, I'm naturally useless at it, and I want to prioritise the core and academic subjects. That said, I reckon with a few lunch time catch ups, I can get more or less up to date.
Anyway, on Friday (a week since my 'invite'), my teacher asked whether I can attend, so I said no. Then she told me it was 'not really an option' and then when I got home, my parents got a letter saying the day was compulsory.
So yeah, do school have a right to make me come in at short notice when I, and a lot of others, have already made plans on that day? Thanks in advance for your answers
Can school make me come into school to catch up on an inset day? watch

No, they can't make you do anything, but when you fail or get a terrible grade, it'll be your own fault. If you can get up to date in a few lunch times, why not go in on the inset day, work hard and get up to speed there and then? If you would rather go out, something you can do on the weekend anyway and possibly throw away the possibility of getting a good grade in tech then that is your own choice.
