Consultation on School Term and Holiday Dates (2021-24)

This consultation ran from 9 March until 3 April 2020 - thank you to all those who took part.

What did we consult on?

We consulted on school term and holiday dates for the following academic years: 2021-22, 2022-23 and 2023-24. We asked for your views on these proposed dates which are set out in the documents below:

These proposed dates are for Haringey’s community and voluntary controlled (VC) schools only. The term dates for voluntary aided schools, academies, free schools and foundation schools are set by the governing bodies for those schools. However, we know that many schools that are not community schools do choose to follow Haringey’s term dates. View the list of Haringey's primary schools and secondary schools. If your school is not described as a community or voluntary controlled school, it means that the school’s governing body sets your term dates and you should refer to your school’s website for further information.

Why did we consult?

Under section 32 of the Education Act 2002, local authorities are responsible for determining the school term and holiday dates for community and VC schools.

In proposing these dates we liaised with neighbouring local authorities about proposals for school term dates in their areas. In doing this we seek to ensure school holidays coincide across borough boundaries to avoid the potential disruption and attendance issues that may arise for families if local schools use differing school calendars. Neighbouring boroughs such as Enfield and Barnet have indicated they will also be consulting on proposed dates set out in the documents above.


The results of the consultation were submitted to the Schools Employee Consultative Group (SCG) who confirmed they took all residents' comments into account.

We published the term dates for the academic years 2021-24 during the second half of the summer term (June-July 2020). They are published on our term dates page.
