Term Dates

Academic year 2020/2021

The school year is 195 days. We have chosen to follow the Reading LA Academic year calendar:

We are able to select 5 INSET days. These are days for staff training, which staff attend and when children are not in school.

Please note that all children are expected to attend school for the 190 days set. 

We are not able to authorise term time holidays, so please can all families book their holidays for during the designated holiday periods.

In setting the 5 INSET days, I have thought to supporting our families with holiday time holidays- the INSET days have been assigned to a Friday before the half term holidays.

Our INSET days:

INSET 1: Tuesday 1st September 2020

INSET 2: Wednesday 2nd September 2020

INSET 3 Friday 23rd October 2020 (the day before half term).

INSET 4: Friday 12th February 2021 (the day before half term)

INSET 5: Friday 28th May 2021 (long bank hol weekend ahead of the May/June half term).
