School Term and Holiday Dates

195 days are included on the school calendar. Schools will be open to pupils for 190 days.  The 5 additional days are allotted for In-Service Training.

Term dates for Local Authority maintained schools must be set with regard to the appropriate regulations which require schools to have at least 380 half-day sessions (190 days) in each school year.  This is consistent with the 195 days a year required by a teacher's Statutory Conditions of Service – the additional five days are for in-service training (INSET).

Cornwall Council consults schools and other relevant parties each time it sets term dates for community and voluntary-controlled schools.  The dates proposed are based on those recommended by the Cornwall Education Unions and those suggested by Plymouth City Council and Devon County Council.
