Change in school holidays
To enable everyone to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen, the late May Bank Holiday (originally 30 May 2022) has been moved to Thursday 2 June 2022, with an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June.
The DfE have reduced the minimum number of sessions schools are required to meet in the academic year 2021/22 to allow for the additional bank holiday. As the additional bank holiday falls in the half term dates already set by the LA, the finish date at the end of the Autumn term has been amended for community and voluntary controlled schools to reflect the reduction in the required number of teaching days.
Schools will now close on Tuesday 21 December 2021.
