KCC is responsible for setting term dates for community and voluntary controlled schools, while governing bodies of foundation and voluntary aided schools are responsible for setting their own term dates. Academies (and free schools) have the freedom to change the length of terms.
In previous years the LGA has coordinated the preparation of a Standard School Year draft for each year. However, the LGA has decided to stop coordinating the development of draft models for standard school years.
In determining the proposed future school term dates, KCC is required to consult on the proposed term dates for the academic years 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17 from 11 March to 27 April 2013. The consultation will be circulated to all schools via the e-bulletin and with other key stakeholders such as governors (including parent groups), the diocesan bodies, trade unions and our neighbouring authorities.
