West Berkshire Council School Term Dates 2019/20

Consultation on proposed term dates for 2019/20


This consultation is now closed.


The proposed school term dates for community and voluntary controlled schools for 2019/20 have been through our internal consultation process and two options 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.

Once agreed, these dates are only a guide and we recommend that you check specific dates with the school, 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 2019/20 the proposed common INSET day is 3 September 2019, with four further training days selected by schools from outside the 'pupil days'.
