When setting term and holiday dates,  Solihull Local Authority take the following factors into consideration:

 

  •   A school year must be 195 days with 190 teaching.

 

  •   Solihull schools set their own 5 training days.

 

  •   The school year should start as close to the 01 September as possible.

 

  •   The teaching week at the start or end of terms of not less than 3 school days.

 

  •   The teaching week to start on Monday and finish on Friday if possible.

 

  •   Christmas Break of 2 weeks.

 

  •   Spring Break to include Easter Bank Holiday weekend   and encompass 3 weekends.

 

  •   Equalise as far as possible teaching periods.

 

  •   Match as closely as possible neighbouring authorities, main exceptions are often September start  or matching half terms to meet the needs of non-Christian holy days.
