Third term – April to June 2022

The Queen will celebrate her 70th anniversary, also known as her Platinum Jubilee, in the first weekend of June 2022.

To create a four-day weekend for the jubilee, the UK government has proposed that one of the public holidays in May is moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional public holiday given on Friday 3 June 2022. As our school holiday calendar for session 2021/2022 has already been agreed, if this change is approved by the council then we would look to align our school holiday arrangements by moving the agreed holidays from Friday 27 May and Monday 30 May 2022 to Wednesday 1 June, Thursday 2 June and Friday 3 June 2022.

As you will be aware, all school calendar dates must be approved by elected members. The proposed changes to the school holiday calendar for session 2021-2022 would need to be presented to the Education and Children’s Services policy board. It is likely to be after the summer break (August 2021) before any change is formally agreed. Once the dates have been approved, we will update this webpage to confirm the dates. In the meantime, we have updated the table of dates below to show what is being proposed.
