Calendar / Term Dates

As a Derbyshire school, we follow Derbyshire County Council’s term dates.  Please follow the links below for the current and forthcoming academic years’ dates:

In-Service Training Days (INSET)

In addition to annual holidays, schools are also allocated five INSET days each academic year to use at their discretion for training and staff development purposes. Occasionally, schools may also have to close due to maintenance works carried out by the utility companies.

Below is a list of when our school plans to be closed during 23/24 academic year. The list will be updated if any changes are made.  We will confirm closure dates to all parents and carers via our usual communication channels i.e. newsletters, FaceBook and Seesaw reminders and text messages.

  1. Monday 4th September 2023
  2. Tuesday 5th September 2023
  3. Friday 27th October 2023
  4. Friday 1st December 2023
  5. Monday 24th June 2024

From time to time, schools may need to close due to unplanned situations, such as extreme weather conditions, lack of water/food supply or emergency situations. Any such closures are will be communicated to parents via text message.

In September 2013 the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 came into force. These regulations make it clear that Headteachers should not grant approval for any leave of absence during term-time, including holidays, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Parents/carers may be issued with a Penalty Notice should leave be taken which is not authorised. If unpaid this could lead to prosecution under section 444(1) of The Education Act 1996.
