West Berkshire Council School Term Dates 2021/22

Consultation on proposed term dates for 2021/22

This consultation is closed.

The proposed school term dates for community and voluntary controlled schools for 2021/22 have been through our internal consultation process and are 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 2021/22 the proposed common INSET day is 1 September 2021, with four further training days selected by schools from outside the 'pupil days'.

The proposed term dates for 2021/22 are:

 Term 1
