Maintenance to online systems

We are carrying out planned maintenance to our systems between 9 am and 12 pm Monday (16th). You may be unable to use some areas of this site or complete online forms. Thank you for your patience.

Term dates

Schools open Monday, January 6
Half term Monday, February 17 to Friday, February 21
Schools close Friday, April 3
Easter holiday Monday, April 6 to Friday, April 17 (Easter Sunday: April 12)


Schools have five extra inset days per year, which the schools themselves choose the dates for. Check your child's school's website for details. 

Schools not run by the city council (such as academies) are free to choose their own term dates, although we encourage all schools to accept the term dates agreed on these pages.
