School term dates and holidays

School calendar 2021/2022

The DfE and ministers have and continue to be under significant pressure during the pandemic and so arrangements and necessary changes have yet to be formally announced for the school calendar for 2021/22.

As a result of our continued requests for a position, the DfE have agreed the following position below to assist with LA’s and schools planning.

‘The Spring Bank Holiday in 2022 will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional Bank Holiday on Friday 3 June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Many schools will already be on their half term breaks in the week commencing 31st May, but where the additional bank holiday falls in term time, schools and LAs should observe the Bank Holidays on 2nd/3rd June and may therefore need to prepare and make any amendments to their published term dates for academic Year 2021/22.

Local authorities and schools will be notified in due course.
