A few general guidelines

The council, along with neighbouring authorities, has set out the following principles for school term dates:

    • October half term is generally the last full week in October
    • a break covering Christmas and New Year
    • February half term will generally be the third full week in February
    • Easter break is renamed the Spring Break and will always be the first two full weeks in April
    • Easter will always be observed via the Bank Holidays for Good Friday and Easter Monday
    • Whitsun half term break will be one week
    • where a school is open for a part-week this will be for a minimum of three days to encourage attendance
    • the five INSET days are to be designated by the individual School Governing Body, but there will be no more than two days in any one term set consecutively
