Consultation on School Holiday and Term time dates for 2019/20, 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23

Closes 8 Oct 2017

Opened 29 Aug 2017

Overview

The Council is currently consulting on School Holiday and Term time dates for 2019/20, 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23.  There are two proposed options:

  • Option 1 follows the current model, which includes 6 weeks for the summer holidays and a fixed spring break (generally the first two weeks in April with Easter at the beginning, middle or end of the two week block) - Download calendar [pdf]
  • Option 2 proposes a slightly shorter 5 week summer holiday and a 2 week October half term break, with a fixed spring break (generally the first two weeks in April with Easter at the beginning, middle or end of the two week block) - Download calendar [pdf]

Dates for 2018/19 have already been set and are available here.

Local Authorities have a duty to determine school term dates for local authority maintained schools.  Schools must be open to pupils for 190 days in an academic year, and 195 days for teachers.

Foundation, Trust, Voluntary Aided schools and Academies are responsible for setting their own holiday dates and so individual schools, which are not maintained by the local authority, may choose to follow a pattern and/or specific dates that do not match those set by Nottinghamshire Local Authority.

When setting proposed dates for each model, we have, where possible, tried to take account of dates/patterns already set by our local authority neighbours.  However, it should be noted that there is no formal mechanism for the regional setting of holiday dates.

Where available, future holiday dates for our local authority neighbours can be found here:
