Please note:

These term dates apply to community and voluntary controlled schools only; academy schools, voluntary aided and foundation schools are responsible for setting their own dates, even though most schools aim to keep consistencies across the County as far as possible. There may also be variation in way schools are setting their Inset Dates (Training Days) as two are left to the discretion of the schools. Therefore, we strongly recommend that all parents check the terms dates their child's school have published on the school’s own website in case they differ from the above dates.

The transition dates are proposed dates only and individual school’s date(s) may vary, please check individual school’s websites for details. It is strongly suggested that School wishing to offer only one Transition day use the first Tuesday of the Month as their preferred option to ensure consistency across the County.
