*Note: 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 2022, with an additional public holiday on Friday 3 June 2022.

Our school calendar for the 2021-2022 session is already agreed. If the council’s elected members approve this change, however, we will update our school holiday arrangements by moving the agreed holiday from Monday 30 May 2022 to Thursday 2 June 2022, plus an additional public holiday on Friday 3 June 2022.

Elected members must approve all school calendar dates. The proposed changes to the school holiday calendar for session 2021-2022 will be presented to the Education and Children’s Services policy board.

Once the board has approved the changes, we will update this webpage to confirm the dates.
