Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report on School Term and Holiday Dates 201819 and 201920.

School employers were required to set the term dates of their school year. Employers were:

• the Local Authority in community, voluntary controlled and community special schools and maintained nursery schools;
• the Governing Body in foundation and voluntary aided school;
• the academy trust in academies and free schools.

In line with statutory requirements and the protocol agreed in 2008, consideration had been given to compile a set of term and holiday dates for schools in the Borough.

Officers consulted with colleagues from all neighbouring authorities to endeavour to reach consensus on a proposed model for the academic year.

Attached to the report were the proposed dates for 2018/2019 and 2019/2020.

As part of the consultation process these documents were duly circulated to schools and all other relevant parties, including unions and associations.

Only one comment had been received from Ian Ramsey Academy, Day Spring Trust in full support of the proposed dates for 2018/2019.

To date, the neighbouring authorities had either recommended or approved their proposed 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 term dates.

RESOLVED that the school term and holiday dates 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 shown at Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 be agreed.
