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 Cambridgeshire County Council/Peterborough City Council.
When setting proposed dates for each model, we have, where possible, tried to take account of dates/patterns already set by our local authority neighbours. However, it should be noted that there is no formal mechanism for the regional setting of holiday dates.
Below, is the proposed term date timetable for all community and voluntary schools in the Peterborough City Council area for the academic year 2019 - 2020.
