How we calculate term dates

The school term and holiday dates for 2015/16 and 2016/17 are based on the dates agreed by the London Inter Authority Admissions Group (LIAAG).

The timetable allows for the legal 195 school days. This includes the 190 days when the school must be open to pupils and 5 staff training days. The 5 staff training and development days are decided by the school's governing body according to the school's development planning cycle.

School governing bodies/academy trusts have responsibility for setting the term dates for academies, foundation schools, free schools and voluntary aided schools. The term dates for these schools may different these schools should be contacted directly.
