School Term Dates

View the school term dates for Nottingham.

Please note that the dates listed below currently apply for all Local Authority maintained Schools in Nottingham City. These are the recommended term dates based on Nottingham City Council's preferred model. At the moment, a commencement date has not yet been determined for the relevant provision of the Deregulation Act, that suggests all schools can set their own term dates.

Therefore, at present the City Council retains a legal responsibility to set term and holidays dates and it is suggested that the City Council continues to provide a framework of dates that we would encourage Nottingham schools to follow.

However, please check with your child's school before booking any holidays from September 2016-19, as once the law changes, individual schools may choose to consult on setting their own term dates, which may differ from the calendars listed here.

Foundation, Trust, Voluntary Aided schools, Academies and Free Schools are responsible for setting their own holiday patterns which may differ from the dates listed here. Please check the school website for details of their holiday dates.

INSET days

Please note that schools will be closed for five teacher training (INSET) days in the academic year. Other than those highlighted in yellow which are recommended INSET days, these dates are decided by the school, so we cannot list them all here.  Please contact your child's school directly to confirm all INSET dates.
