School Term and Holiday dates are set by the us and apply to all Community and Voluntary Controlled Schools. Governing Bodies of Academies, Voluntary Aided and Foundation Schools are recommended to adopt the dates set by us.

Term dates are based on a school year of around 195 days, although individual schools can use five of these days for staff training inset days. Contact your child's school for details of inset dates.
