How term dates are set
We understand that many people live and work across county borders. We work with our local authority neighbours to try to match dates across the region as far as possible. The total number of teaching days and holidays remain the same each year.
You should not take your child out of school for a holiday during term time. Headteachers will not authorise the absence unless it is under exceptional circumstances.
