TERM DATES AND THE SCHOOL DAY 2021-22 (sent to parents on 2.10.20)

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your responses to our Term Dates and School Survey. We had 132 responses and the results can be found on the next page.

The data received and the written comments were carefully considered before a final decision was taken in regards to the term dates and the set-up of the school day for 2021-22.

Next year the school will be full, with pupils from Nursery to Year 6 and the curriculum will be fully developed, with a highly trained staff body. The Trust, the local governors and the school leaders, having considered the parental responses, have decided to increase the number of school days and reduce the amount of Training Days. This will bring us more in line with other schools locally, as the Year 6 pupils prepare to transition to local secondary schools. 

2021-22 Headlines

The school year for 2021-22 will last 187 days compared to 183 days in 2020-21.

The school day will remain at 8.30am to 3.30pm from Monday to Thursday.

The school day will finish slightly earlier at 3pm every Friday.

The Autumn Half Term (October 2021) will now be one week long in 2021-22. This year (2020-21) the Autumn Half Term will be two weeks long as previously planned. 


We have chosen to keep the later start in September 2021 so that teachers have the maximum amount of staff training before the children return after the Summer Holidays.

We believe that the longer school day serves our families well and we have protected this as far as possible, alongside increasing the number of school days. The slightly earlier finish on a Friday will ensure that this new set-up is compliant with the amount of working hours we can ask teachers to complete each week. This is in line with the Teacher Pay and Conditions as set by the Department for Education.

Thank you for your input and your continued support.

Kind regards,

Mr Custance (Headteacher)

Camilla Brough (Chair of the Governing Body)
