Term Dates

Term Dates 2021/22


In addition to the 190 pupil days during the school year, teaching staff must also be available for work on 5 extra days (or the equivalent of 30 hours). These days are commonly referred to as training days and are used for staff development. Each individual school decides when their training days will take place. Some training days may be taken within the identified term times and on these days schools will be closed to pupils.
