Training days

The above schedule sets out 198 days in total, providing a framework for schools from which five days should be selected as training days for teachers, set by headteachers in consultation with their staff.

Occasional days

The schedule also allows for the three occasional days holiday for pupils and staff to be set in consultation with each school’s governing body. In considering the dates of these three days, governing bodies should take account of the need to observe religious festivals other than Christmas and Easter. These should also be taken from within the 198 days specified in the schedule. Should the occasional days not be required for religious festivals it is recommended that they be used at the end of the summer term 2017.

Please note that the total number of working days for teachers is 195 and for pupils is 190.
