Local authorities are no longer required to determine the dates when school terms and holidays are to begin and end for community, voluntary controlled or community special schools or maintained nursery schools. This is part of the Deregulation Act 2015 (see section 788-791), which became an Act of Parliament on 30 March 2015.
This means that it is now the responsibility of the governing body of a maintained school in England to set the dates for school terms and holidays.
We have not set term dates beyond the academic year 2015/2016.
If you wish to find out the term and holiday dates for a particular school, please contact the school directly.
The school term dates and school holidays will be correct for the majority of schools. However, school term dates can vary slightly between schools eg for teacher training days at the start or end of a school term. The school should advise you in advance of any changes to their school term dates. If you are in any doubt, please contact the school directly.
