How term dates are set

Many people live and work across county borders, so we work with neighbouring local authorities such as Kent, West Sussex and Brighton & Hove, to try to match dates across the region as far as possible. The total number of teaching days and holidays remain the same each year.

Term-time holidays

You should not take your child out of school for a holiday during term time. Headteachers will not authorise the absence unless it is under exceptional circumstances.
