Holidays and In Service days for the academic years 2021/2022 to 2025/26

Closed 20 Oct 2019

Opened 24 Sep 2019


The Council is seeking your views on the school holidays and In Service days for future academic years 2021/22  to 2025/26; ending June 2026. 

Why We Are Consulting

We are consulting so that parents, pupils, staff, parent councils, local businesses and anyone else with an interest  can inform future academic years 2021/22  to 2025/26.

Feedback from families has indicated difficulties with childcare arrangements when holiday weeks are split and In Service days are not linked to holidays. Option B is an attempt to address these concerns.

We are proposing 2 options:

Option A: Current pattern of holidays and In Service days

Option B: Changes to  pattern to link In Service days with holidays

The preferred option will inform the school term dates for the next 5 years  2021/22 to 2025/26.
