The Education (School Day and School Year) (England) Regulations 1999 (SI 1999 No.3181) requires schools to have at least 380 half-day sessions (190 days) in each school year, beginning with the first term to start after July. An additional five days are required for in-service training (INSET days).

For an academy school such as ours, the Trust Board of Directors is able to set term and holiday dates for Lumen schools.  This means our term dates could vary slightly from those set by Surrey County Council in any academic year.

Whilst we try and align our term dates as closely as possible with Surrey's, our decision-making is based on the needs and best interests of our pupils. This can include scheduling more than one Inset day at the end of the summer term as children benefit from an earlier end date after what is usually a long and tiring half term or by having a slightly later return after the Christmas and New Year holiday period, which is usually a busy and intense time for our pupils, to ensure they have the most successful possible start to the Spring Term.
