Now to help you get started on your journey to a Google Calendar for your school, here are some ready-made UK Term Dates for your school’s Google Calendar.
Below are some Ready-made Term Date calendars built in Google Calendar. Schools, Local Authorities, Parents, Teachers and generally anyone who has an interest is welcome to download or import these calendars in to their own.

While we have made every effort to ensure that these terms dates are as accurate as possible, we cannot be held responsible for any changes that may occur at the Local Authority or School level. All Schools are independent in determining their own Inset (In Service) training days. These are not accounted for within these Term Date Calendars.
