School term and holiday dates
Most schools in Wakefield have the same term and holiday dates, based on dates set and agreed by the Council:
Some schools set their own holiday dates.
Voluntary aided schools, trust schools and academies can set their own school calendars. If your child attends a voluntary aided school, a trust school, or an academy, enquire with the school directly to check their holiday dates.
INSET or teacher training days
Each school is allowed to set five INSET days each year, agreed by its governing body. Your child’s school will let you know what these dates are, once they have been set.
