At its March meeting, the Education, Children and Families Committee agreed to change the scheduled Christmas holiday dates from Friday 24 December 2021 – Monday 10 January 2022 to Monday 20 December 2021 – Tuesday 4 January 2022.
The change was based on a similar amendment to the previous year’s holiday dates. The reasons for the change are set out in this committee report:
The report did not include consideration of the in-service day after the holidays. This will be Wednesday 5 January 2022. To ensure that pupils are in school for the required 190 days, the summer term will be amended to finish on Friday 1 July 2022 instead of Thursday 30 June.
The agreed changes are now on the Council website, along with dates for dates for 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25.
