Terms

Under the 1986 Education Act children are required to be in school for 190 days each academic year.

These are divided up into three terms:

Autumn September to December
Spring January to Easter
Summer April to July

During each term there is a half term break of one week.

Teachers are in school for a further five days for professional training (Inset days).
