Power to set school term dates reverts to council

The council will again 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 in Central Bedfordshire.

Earlier this year the government announced that it would be up to the governing bodies of maintained schools to set term dates.

That was after the Deregulation Act 2015 came into force at the end of March.

However, the power to set term dates has now reverted to local authorities after maintained schools indicated that they were happy for them to do so.
