Interesting notice on SupportNet regarding DfE regs on School Year
Anyone do this? Or get into trouble because of it?
DfE Regulations Regarding the School YearPlease note the following extract from The Education (School Day and School Year) (England) Regulations 1999 (The Education (School Day and School Year) (England) Regulations 1999
“school year” means the period beginning with the first school term to begin after July and ending with the beginning of the first such term to begin after the following July.
DfE schools that start their school year before the end of July should consider whether they are operating within these regulations and schools that end their school year after the end of July should consider the problems this can create for DfE data collections.
