Term Dates

The documents below show our school term dates for 2016/17 and 2017/18. Please note the INSET days listed at the bottom. On these dates school will be closed to all pupils.  Thank you. Important reminder Friday 9th December 2016 is NO LONGER an INSET day and school is open to all pupils as normal. (updated 18.10.16) 


Regular Attendance is vital if your child is to truly succeed and reach their true potential. The pastoral support team at Bedford work very closely with our families and key outside agencies to promote good attendance.


If your child is absent, it is important that you notify school on the first day of their absence (0151-922-1467). Our Learning Mentors will contact any parents whose child is absent and have not contacted the office. On the child’s return, we request written confirmation of the reason for their absence. We ask our parents to make medical appointments out of school hours. However, if this is not possible we can only authorise absences for appointments on production of an official appointment card or letter.


Holidays during term time are not permitted. Any unauthorised periods of absence could result in parents being issued with penalty notices resulting in a fine.
