Why your views matter

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; South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset and North Somerset.

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

What happens next

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.
