School term and holiday dates



Most schools in the Wakefield District have the same term and holiday dates.

These dates are set and agreed by the Council.‚Äč

Schools setting own dates

Voluntary-aided schools and academies can set their own term and holiday dates. If your child attends one of these types of school, you should enquire with the school directly to check their dates.

INSET (teacher-training) days

Each school is allowed to set five INSET days each year. These are days on which teachers attend school for training and other tasks, but children do not attend. The dates of INSET days are agreed by the governing body of the school. Your child's school will let you know what these dates are, once they have been set.
