Term Dates

Term Dates 2020/21


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.


Our training days 2020/21 are:


  • Monday 07 September 2020
  • Friday 23 October 2020
  • Friday 28th May 2021

Please note:

  • Friday 27th May is our Queen's Platinum Jubilee Day and school will be closed to staff and pupils.


 This is in lieu of the actual Queen's Jubilee day falling in the Summer Half Term holiday.
