School Term Dates & Inset Days

NPT School Term Dates 

During the Academic Year, schools are allocated up to six INSET days to use at their discretion for training and staff development purposes. Occasionally, schools may also have to close due to maintenance works carried out by the utility companies which are outside of the schools control.

From time to time, schools may need to close due to unplanned situations; such as extreme weather conditions or emergency situations. Any such closures are listed separately on the ‘Emergency Schools Closure’ page.

Above you will find a link to the local authority website with an up to date list of school term dates and Inset Days planned. The list will continue to be updated as information is received. Schools will confirm closure dates to all parents and carers via their usual communication channel.
