Transition dates are proposed dates only. Individual school's date/s may vary, please check individual school websites for details. It's suggested that schools wishing to offer only one transition day use the first Tuesday of the month as their preferred option, this is to ensure consistency across the county.
Exceptions for academy, voluntary aided, and foundation schools
Academy schools, voluntary aided schools, and foundation schools are responsible for setting their own term dates, this includes inset dates (training days).
Most schools aim to keep consistencies across the county as far as possible. We strongly recommend that parents check the published dates on the school's website.
