How term dates are set
Many people live and work across county borders, so we work with neighbouring local authorities such as Kent, West Sussex and Brighton & Hove, 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.
