Variations to term dates

The school term dates and school holidays will be correct for the majority of schools. But, school term dates can vary between schools, e.g. for teacher training days at the start or end of a school term. The school should tell you in advance of any changes to their school term dates. If you are in any doubt, please contact the school.
