Please note Due to the proposed funding from St John's Foundation, we have taken the unusual step of reserving an additional training day for this academic year. This additional date, which will provide specialised training to ensure the effective delivery and use of the funding, has been approved by Castle's Local Governing Body. The Trust Board approved these dates on 28 06 21. Whilst we do not anticipate any of the staff training days being changed, there is always a possibility that they may need to be amended. Should such a change be necessary we will do our very best to provide as much notice as we possibly can.
21 July 2021 Update as notified by B&NES Admissions
'The 2021/22 School Term dates were determined and published in April 2020. Since then, the Government has announced that in 2022 there will be an additional bank holiday. This bank holiday will be on 3 June 2022 to mark the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty The Queen.
A Statutory Instrument (SI) is in place that reduces the number of sessions that are held in the 2021/22 school year. The SI reduces the requirement for schools to operate from 195 days to 194 days.
To reflect this change and in order to enable schools to close for the additional bank holiday we have amended the dates at the end of the school year. The term will now end on Thursday 21 July 2022 and Friday 22 July 2022 will be the start of the summer holiday period.'
