New School holiday pattern 2021/2022 – Doncaster Council

In early 2020 Doncaster Council were looking for opinions from parents, families, school staff and other groups on whether schools in Doncaster should look to keep the existing holiday pattern, or whether to opt one of a number of alternative options based on feedback we have received about how holiday patterns work best for everyone.

Following this consultation,  over 7,000 responses were received with a clear preferred choice amongst them to change the existing school holiday pattern. As of September 2021, the new school holiday pattern will come into effect for the 31 community schools in Doncaster that the council maintain (although we will be encouraging other schools and academies to adopt the same holiday pattern where possible).

The changes would affect 33 schools that Doncaster Council is responsible for, but Academies and Church Schools who set their own school holiday pattern are encouraged to use the same one.

Schools that are included:

Barnburgh Primary School
Bawtry Mayflower Primary School
Bentley New Village Primary School
Carcroft Primary School
Copley Junior School
Hatfield Sheep Dip Lane Primary School
Hawthorn Primary School
Hayfield Lane Primary School
Kirkby Avenue Primary School

Changes to Schools Holiday Patterns in Doncaster 2021/2022 Academic Year

Announcement from Doncaster Countil 6th July 2020

Earlier in the year, we were looking for opinions from parents, families, school staff and other groups on whether schools in Doncaster should look to keep the existing holiday pattern, or whether to opt one of a number of alternative options based on feedback we have received about how holiday patterns work best for everyone.

We received a HUGE 7,000+ responses to this consultation, and with a clear preferred option, we will be implementing a new school holiday pattern for the 2021/22 academic year.

  • Who will the new school holiday pattern affect?

This will only affect the 31 ‘community schools’ in Doncaster which the council maintain, although we will be encouraging other schools and academies to follow the same pattern where possible. A full list of the 31 schools is available on our New School Holiday Pattern FAQs  HERE on the Doncaster Council Website

  • What will the new school holiday pattern look like?

The option that was chosen as the preferred new holiday pattern will see a fixed Easter break (which will now be known as Early Summer Break), with a two-week October half term and a five-week summer holiday, breaking up a week later than usual in July.

  • When will the new holiday pattern come in effect? 

The changes to the schools holiday pattern will take effect from September 2021 for the 2021/22 academic year.

You will find lots more information about these changes, the schools affected, key dates and more in the ‘New School Holiday Pattern’ FAQs, along with the new school holiday calendar and more information about the consultation response available to download  HERE
