Results of Consultation of School Term Dates 2019 - 2020

Local Authorities have a duty to determine school term dates for local authority maintained schools. Schools must be open to pupils for 190 days in an academic year, and 195 days for teachers.

Foundation, Trust, Voluntary Aided schools and Academies are responsible for setting their own holiday dates and so individual schools, may choose to follow a pattern and/or specific dates that do not match those set by Peterborough City Council.

Please check the school’s own website to verify term dates and details of staff training dates, which are set at the discretion of the school.

When setting and determining the term dates for Peterborough City Council maintained schools, we have, where possible, tried to take account of dates/patterns already set by our local authority neighbours, to support families for whom the pattern of their child’s educational provision occurs in two different local authority areas.

Following the period of consultation, which took place between 4 December 2017 and 12 January 2018 the timetable below shows the determined School Term Dates for all community and voluntary schools in the Peterborough City Council area for the academic year 2019 - 20.
