Consultation on the proposed school term dates for 2020/21


School term and holiday dates are set by the council for our community and voluntary controlled schools and maintained nursery schools.  Governing bodies set the term dates for foundation, trust and voluntary aided schools, free schools and academies.

This eight week consultation sets out two possible options for term dates for 2020/21, and seeks to gather opinions on the dates and the preferred option.

Please read the linked documents on this page and send us your views on this proposal by emailing or completing the online response form.  It would be helpful if you could tell us if you are a parent/carer, a local resident or a member of staff at a school and what your preferred option for term dates is. 

Feedback from this consultation will be considered by the Cabinet Member for Children and Families in June 2019.
