What we consulted on?
Haringey Council consulted on school term and holiday dates for the following academic years: 2018/19, 2019/20 and 2020/21. We asked for your views on these proposed dates which are set out in the documents below:
- Proposed School Term and Holiday Dates for 2018-19 Academic Year (PDF, 32KB)
- Proposed School Term and Holiday Dates for 2019-20 Academic Year (PDF, 107KB)
- Proposed School Term and Holiday Dates for 2020-21 Academic Year (PDF, 107KB)
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 all of the borough’s community and VC schools (PDF, 18KB). If your school is not on the list 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 Barnet have indicated they will also be consulting on proposed dates set out in the documents above.
