Term Dates 2016-17
The term dates for September 2016 - August 2017 are on the Bracknell Forest Council website. As you will see these dates create a 'messy' start to the academic year with the mandatory INSET day on Thursday 1st September and the first day of school on Friday 2nd September.
Consequently, the governors have agreed to change the pattern of INSETs for 2016-17 so that the first day of school for all years is Monday 5th September 2016. This means that there will be two INSET days in September (1st and 2nd September), but no INSET the day before the October half term. In addition, the July INSET is to be moved to (provisionally) Friday 17th June 2017 to allow the teaching staff to attend the Festival of Education at Wellington College. The two remaining INSET days will continue to be the Thursday and Friday prior to the February half-term when we hold the School Development Conference.
In 2017-18, we will likely return to the current pattern (September-1, October-1, February-2), but with a permanent change from July to June for the final INSET.
