Schools Term and Holiday Dates

School Term and Holiday Dates 2021/2022 Consultation 

Due to a very unprecedented year, we have had very little responses to our original suggested dates but received quite a few suggestions of what would work better for the schools. Therefore we have amended the suggested dates for 2021-2022 and hope these are more suited across the board.

The two options being proposed for 2021/2022  take into account the wishes of schools to retain a calendar of 195 days which permits staff development days to be set within term time dates and to keep to full weeks wherever possible.

Option 1 has a later February and Easter break. The school year ends on Thursday 21st July. This produces a summer holiday of five weeks and four days.

Option 2 has an earlier February and Easter break. The school year ends on Friday 22nd July 2022. This produces a summer holiday of 5 weeks and three days.

Term dates 2021 - 2022 Swindon Consultation Pro Forma

Term dates 2021-2022 Swindon Option 1+2

Please also note that academies and voluntary aided schools can set their own school term and holiday dates.

Schools are asked to feedback their comments and which option they would prefer for 2021/2022 on the Consultation Response Pro Forma, and return by 22nd June 2020 to slinstead@swindon.gov.uk .
