The Education (School Day and School Year) Regulations (1999) require all maintained schools to open for teaching for 190 days a year, offering 380 sessions. The above sets out dates for 195 days. Pupils are to be released for a further 5 days for the purpose of teachers’ staff development (INSET). These days can be taken as inset days or equivalent twilight sessions.

Academies, free schools and voluntary-aided schools are able to set their own dates but are asked to set the same or similar dates in the interest of parents who may have children at different schools.
