Why We Are Consulting

Bristol City Council is responsible for setting the school term and holiday dates for all Community and Voluntary Controlled schools in the city.

Academies and Free schools are able to set their own school term dates which may or may not be co-ordinated with those set by Bristol City Council.

These dates are being proposed following discussions with local authorities neighbouring Bristol.

Before agreeing the proposed school term and holiday dates we would like to know your views.

Please complete the online survey or email your comments to

All responses will be considered before the school term and holiday dates are agreed.  The school term and holiday dates will then be published on the Bristol City Council website.
