Term dates

(Add the school term dates to your personal calendar)

These term dates show the holidays recommended by the Local Authority.  Foundation and Voluntary Aided Schools can change these dates to suit their local needs therefore the dates below may be altered by individual schools.

Schools may also choose to hold a teachers' in-service training day within term time (up to 5 days per year), so the date on which term ends, or starts, for pupils at different schools may change.

You should contact your child's school for their precise term dates.  

Word versions for schools

Term time holidays: You should not take children on holiday during term time. If it is unavoidable you will need to get permission from the headteacher at your child's school. 

Following consultation, the term dates for 2016-2017 have been decided.

Thank you to all those who gave us their views and took part in the consultation.  The chosen dates are listed above.
