EXPIRED Consultation on Devon Term Dates for 2020/21 and 2021/22

Devon County Council are consulting on term dates for community and voluntary-controlled schools (and recommends these dates for adoption by Governors of Foundation, Voluntary Aided, Trust maintained, Academies and Free Schools).

Each term has been set to be as equal in length as possible – taking into account fixed dates in the calendar such as Christmas, Easter, SATS and exams.

During the school year, all schools are invited to nominate five days when they will close for staff training and for two occasional school holidays.

Term dates are set after consultation with all Devon schools and representatives from union associations to establish 197 school days (including five training and two occasional school holidays).

Devon’s calendar has been created through discussion with neighbouring authorities to ensure consistency across the South West (where possible).

Please could any response be made by email, by Friday 8 February.

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
