Local Authority Consultation on School Calendar for 2017/18
25th February 2016
Schools that are their own Admission Authority already have the powers to set their own school calendar, including Academies and Voluntary Aided Schools, and it was anticipated that this would be extended to all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools. However the Government have chosen not commence that move and therefore the local authority are required to consult on the proposals before they determine the dates. The consultation paper can be downloaded from here; it also contains details of a consultation event to be held on 15 March to which governors are invited.
