KCC Term Dates For Kent Schools

Over a school year, pupils are required to attend for 190 days/380 sessions. In total, teachers may be required to be available for work on up to 195 days, with the additional days specified by individual schools as noncontact days. Schools may also require teachers to work additional hours before or after school sessions, as an alternative to full non-contact days, provided that any teacher is not required to work in aggregate more than 1,265 hours during a school year. Schools may therefore choose to require teachers to make up the full equivalent of the 5 non-contact days wholly through additional hours, or use a mixture of additional hours and non-contact days.

Children and young people referred to Tuition Extra by Kent Count Council follow KCC term dates.

Term dates for some schools may be different. Contact your child’s school to check when extra days, like staff training days, are.

Private or independent schools set their own term dates.
