School terms and holidays agreed for 2024/25

Cabinet members have approved the proposed term times and holiday dates for Barnsley schools, for the school year 2024/2025.

Discussions have taken place with neighbouring councils, as they do onĀ an annual basis, to co-ordinate holiday dates as far as possible.

There will be no change to the traditional model of term and holiday dates which we have adopted in recent years. This includes keeping the six-week summer break.

There may be minor variations at voluntary aided schools and academies since it is the responsibility of their respective governing bodies to determine their individual dates.

If your child attends a voluntary aided school, a trust school, or an academy, get in touch with the school directly to check their holiday dates.

More information will be published on our school terms and holidays page
