School Holidays & Training Days


Welsh Government - School term dates - Regulations

Welsh Ministers have used the Education (Wales) Act 2014 to make legislative changes to how term dates are set in order to enable harmonisation of school term dates for all maintained schools.

These changes mean that local authorities and the governing bodies of voluntary aided and foundation schools can be directed by the Welsh Ministers on what their term dates must be if those dates are not harmonised, or if they need changing.

Harmonised Term Dates and Minister’s Direction

 

Standard Training Dates

Please note that five training days for teaching staff are held annually.  On training days, the school premises are open but pupils are not admitted.  The local authority no longer recommends set training days.  Schools are responsible for setting their own training dates.  Please see your child’s school website for details.
