Term dates / holidays

Year 2020 / 2021:

Planning and preparation days will take place at the start of term to review risk assessments to be assured that individual schools can welcome pupils back safely.

Some specific groups of learners might need to be prioritised during the first two weeks of term and a ‘phasing in’ approach taken. From Monday, 14 September school attendance will be compulsory.

Going on holiday during school term

Going on holiday during school term

Taking children on holiday during term time can lead to a series of problems such as:

  • your child's education suffering
  • missing lessons and extra curricular activities
  • continuity of work being lost

As a result we ask you to avoid going on holiday during term time if possible.

If you have to take your child out of school during term time, you will have to discuss and agree with your school.   

Teacher Training Days

There are 5 teacher training days in every academic year.  Every individual School decides when these will be held; contact your school to receive the dates.
