Please note: Academy, voluntary-aided and foundation schools set their own term dates - check with them directly to find out more.
The West Berkshire term dates allow for one set inset day over and above the 190 pupil days. There are four additional inset days which schools are able to decide for themselves and these need to be outside specified pupil days. These agreed term dates provide a guide.
Sometimes a school may adjust the dates slightly due to specific circumstances - check with the school if a specific date is key to your plans, eg: before making a holiday booking.
Setting School Term Dates
Academies, foundation schools and voluntary aided schools are responsible for setting term dates for their school. We encourage them to consider the implications for parents who may have other children who attend community or local authority-controlled partner schools before they vary their own arrangements.
We run an annual consultation on term dates through our consultation portal.
