Proposed School Term and Holiday Dates 2022/23

Have your say

The proposed school term dates for community and voluntary controlled schools for 2022/23 have been through our internal consultation process. 

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 with the school if a specific date is key to your plans, e.g. before making a holiday booking, 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 2022/23 the proposed common INSET days are 2 September 2022 and suggests other inset days on 21 October 2022, 31 October 2022, 3 January 2023 and 31 March 2023.   We have aligned our term dates with neighbouring authorities to try to alleviate any cross border difficulties.

The proposed term dates for 2022/23 are:
