West Berkshire Council School Term Dates 2018/19
Consultation on proposed term dates for 2018/19
The proposed school term dates for community and voluntary controlled schools for 2018/19 have been through our internal consultation process and are now available for your consideration.
We recommend that schools consider aligning their terms with other schools in the area, for example secondary schools with primary schools, in recognition that families may have children in different year groups. However, once agreed, the dates are only a guide and we recommend that you check with the school if a key date is specific to your plans, as a school may adjust the dates slightly due to other plans.
Our set dates traditionally include a common INSET at the start of the Autumn Term. For 2018/19 the proposed common INSET day is 4 September 2018, with four further training days selected by schools from outside the 'pupil days'.
The proposed term dates for 2018/19 are as follows:
|5 September to 19 October 2018||33 days|
|Holiday||22 October to 29 October 2018|
|30 October to 20 December 2018||38 days|
