Term dates and school holidays

Term dates and school holidays for the school years up to 2020.


From 2015 schools have been able to consider variations to term dates provided they meet the statutory requirements. Parents are advised to contact the relevant school for confirmation of term dates.

If you are looking for information about inset days or other arrangements you should check with the school directly. You can find school contact details.

Calendar style term date documents are attached to this page.

Holidays during term time

You shouldn't normally take your child on holiday during term time. The Gov.UK website has information on what the law says about school attendance and absence.
