Term Dates

To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year, the Spring Bank Holiday in 2022 will be moved to Thursday 2 June and an additional bank holiday on Friday 3 June will see a four-day weekend to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.  These days fall in the Summer half term and the DfE would like to ensure all school staff have an extra day of celebration too.

 

In order to accommodate this the DfE have reduced the number of school days in the academic year of 2021-22.  Buckinghamshire Council have advised all schools that this extra day will be taken on Thursday 21st July, ending the Summer term a day early.  By doing this we believe there will be less disruption to schools, children, parents and transport.

 

A calendar is attached with the revised term dates shown.  Please see the link below for further information regarding the extra bank holiday.

To comply with the Department of Education directive, our school will now close for the children one day earlier – the school will now close on Wednesday 20th July at 1:30.
