These are the term dates for Reading’s maintained schools. Academies and free schools do not have to follow these, so please confirm with your child’s school before booking holidays, etc.

Schools can set a number of training (inset) days, when they are closed to pupils. These may be different in each school and your school should inform you in advance.
