The School Term explained: School Term dates are provided by local councils to all provisions that offer education funded by the state; this can be nurseries, schools, pre-schools and childminders. All these providers must offer 38 weeks of education for children aged 2- until the term after their 5th birthday; this is for 15 hours per week or 30 hours for those families who are eligible. All providers are allowed to take 5 days training to improve the provision and quality of education they provide these are generally called Inset Days. Most schools abide by the traditional 6-7 week term with a one week break (half term) and then 6-7 week term with a two week break at Christmas and Easter and then a six week break over the summer holidays. Although this doesn’t always fit exactly due to when Easter falls as this is slightly different every year (see Spring term 2 is only a four week term). I hope this helps give a little more clarity but do ask us if you have any questions, Thanks.

Rainbow tots: In the Pre-School Hall, Rainbow tots (parent/carer and baby/toddler group) is on Mondays, 10am – 12pm and for babies and children 0-5 years.
