Inset Days and School Closures

Please note: Any fixed inset days that apply to all schools are indicated on this page.  Schools also have an additional 4 inset days per year and the dates can differ. Check your inset days by using the school closures list or by contacting your school.

Please note that the published dates apply only to community, voluntary controlled, community special and maintained nursery schools in Staffordshire. Academies, free schools, foundation schools and voluntary aided schools have freedom over their school terms and holiday dates.  Whilst encouraged to accept the dates set by Staffordshire County Council, they are not required to. Parents are therefore advised to contact the relevant school for confirmation of term dates.

2018/2019 School Term and Holiday Dates: please note that these dates won’t be published until early in 2017 and the webpage will be updated at that time.
