Term Dates

We always adhere fully to the dates for the school year and holidays as prescribed by Hertfordshire County Council. Sometimes these dates do not align with schools in our neighbouring London Boroughs.

 

Some local Academies and Church Schools may follow different dates.

 

We determine dates for our own INSET days and for one occasional day. Both our schools are also designated Polling Stations, but in the case of the Infant School ONLY, and with the limitations we have to work with due to the size of that site, this necessitates the closure of the Infant school, should it be requisitioned by the council for their electoral requirements. 

 

We publish our dates at least two years in advance, so parents can more easily make arrangements for holidays and ensure these are not taken during term time.

 

INSET days are tagged onto existing school holidays to minimise any disruption for our families.
