Gloucestershire school Term dates

Term dates 2017-18

(Add the school term dates to your personal calendar)

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.

Setting term dates

The Deregulation Act 2015 includes a provision which gives the governing bodies of community, voluntary controlled, community special schools, and maintained nursery schools in England the responsibility for setting their own school term and holiday dates. This provision will not be commenced. Local authorities will therefore continue to set the term dates for these schools.

We consult on the term dates community and voluntary controlled schools. Parents/carers, teachers, transport and catering teams and other interested parties take part in the consultations, and therefore we remind community and voluntary controlled schools that they should continue to use these set term dates.

Academies, foundation schools and voluntary aided schools remain responsible for setting term dates for their school, and we encourage them to consider the implications for parents who may have other children who attend other schools in the area and set their term dates in good time.
