Term Dates

From September 2015 all schools, including community and voluntary-controlled schools, will be able to set their own term dates.  However, the Local Authority will continue to provide recommended dates to schools in order to encourage consistency across the county and with its neighbours, Devon and Plymouth.

The proposed dates will continue to be based on the recommendations from the Cornwall Education Unions and the recommended dates proposed by Devon County Council and Plymouth City Council.  They will also be prepared in line with the requirements for local authority maintained schools to have 190 pupil days and 5 INSET days.
