School Half Terms UK

The summer term starts on Monday 11 April 2016 *

Local authorities have a duty to determine the school term dates for community and voluntary-controlled schools in their area and recommends these dates for adoption by Governors of Foundation, Voluntary Aided, Trust maintained, Academies and Free Schools. It is hoped that for consistency across Devon that all schools will adopt the recommended term dates. In previous years Devon’s calendar has been based upon the Local Government Association’s standard school year recommendation, but they no longer perform this role.

The school year in Devon is split into the three terms of: autumn, spring and summer. Each term has two half-terms. During the school year, all schools are invited to nominate days when they will close for staff training – these are called non-pupil days or inset days – and for two occasional school holidays.

Term dates are set after consultation with all Devon maintained schools and representatives from union associations to establish 197 school days (including 2 occasional days and 5 staff training days). Devon’s calender has been created based upon previous years calendars and through discussion with neighbouring authorities to ensure consistency across the South West (where possible). Academies and free schools are not required to provide education for 190 days but the Local authority encourages them to do so.

Non-pupil dates and opening times

All maintained schools are required to open for 197, days of which pupils should attend for 190 days during each academic year. Schools are allowed to set two days of occasional holiday and five staff training days. It is recommended that schools set their occasional days so as to avoid split week holidays, wherever they fall, however, this is the responsibility of school governors not the Local Authority.
