Question: Where can I find details of term and holiday dates for Isle of Wight Schools for the academic year 2018 - 2019?

Answer: The Isle of Wight Council has recently consulted on term and holiday dates for the academic year 2018 - 2019 and these are waiting approval by a Council Committee. However due to the forthcoming local elections, the Council is in purdah - the pre-election period in the United Kingdom, specifically the time between an announced election and the final election results. The time period prevents central and local government from making announcements about any new or controversial government initiatives (such as modernisation initiatives or administrative and legislative changes) which could be seen to be advantageous to any candidates.

We anticipate the term and holiday dates being approved in early July 2017.
