School Term Dates

Please see below for term dates for the 2018/19 academic year and also link to term dates for  2019/20.  We aim to keep you as up-to-date as possible with term dates so as you can plan family holidays outside term time.  This is so important so as not to negatively affect outcomes for children by missing out on school time.


May Bank Holiday 2020: When Is The May Bank Holiday? And Why Was The Date Changed?

You may be aware that the early May bank holiday date for 2020 has been changed from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May for the VE Day anniversary.  Normally, May Day takes place on the first Monday in May, marking the start of spring. Next year, however, it'll be shifted back to Friday 8 May 2020 to coincide with the 75th anniversary of VE Day. The Calderdale term dates are being altered to reflect this and therefore school will be closed on Friday 8 May 2020.
