School term dates

Individual schools set their own school days and term dates.

The dates on this page are set by the council for Local Authority maintained nursery schools, Byker Primary School and Walbottle Campus. Other schools are encouraged to use the same dates but don't have to. You will find individual school term dates on their own websites.

The school year starts in September and is usually organised into 3 terms with a 1 week holiday halfway through the term. 

Pupils spend 190 days (38 weeks) in school each year. 5 extra days are reserved for training teachers and support staff. Every school sets its own training dates and will tell parents if the school is closed to pupils.
