After so much lockdown and kids home time, we thought we’d bring back our School Holiday Dates page, although maybe thinking about holidays is the furthest from your mind when all you want to do is get the kids settled back into school.

Before we move on to the dates, take a look at the Prime Minister’s information pack for parents and carers on getting our kids back into school once again. SCHOOL

This page should help with your planning for school holidays and the like. We have listed every council area for 21/22. As we’re sure you’re aware, the holiday dates don’t change that often but we’ll keep our eye open and make any necessary changes. Maybe bookmark this page and come back regularly.

We have also put direct links to the relevant council site for their official calendar. Just click on the dates, below the names of the council, to be taken to the school year you need.

We have organised this page slightly differently to most timetables, telling you when the actual holidays start and finish (not including weekend). So they tend to run Monday to Friday, depending on the individual school authority. These are HOLIDAY DATES and not term times.

Finally, remember individual schools have their own schedule of in-service, teacher training days etc.
