School term dates 2006/07 to 2020/21 by local authority

The request was partially successful.

Dear Cardiff Council,

Please could you provide the school term dates set by your authority between the academic years 2006/07 and 2020/21?

If possible, please could you: (1) supply these dates in .csv or .xlsx (Excel) format; (2) include the dates for each of the six half terms for each academic year; (3) for each half term, list the ‘Open’ date as the first day that local authority schools were open and the ‘Close’ date as the last day that local authority schools were open; (4) state that a school was ‘Open’ even if it is expected that all schools used that date as in INSET (in-service training) day; (5) ignore the early May bank holidays, Easter weekend (if not in holiday time), royal events, and any other nation-wide public holidays.

In case it is useful, I have created a spreadsheet proforma for the information which can be found here: https://tinyurl.com/termdatesWales

I am making this request under the FOI Act. Many thanks, in advance, for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Hester Burn

Cardiff Council

Dear Cardiff Council,

Thank you so much for your prompt response.

The link above only includes term dates for 2022/23 - 2024/25. ICO guidance states “If only part of the requested information is in the public domain, section 21 can only apply to that part of the request". Therefore I believe that the terms dates originally requested, for 2006/07 - 2020/21, cannot be refused under Section 21.

Please could you either provide the term dates for 2006/07 - 2020/21 as originally requested, provide further details about where they can be found, or confirm that you do not hold the information.

This is for a project looking at household expenditure on food during school holidays, so I hope that it will truly be for the public good. Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Hester Burn
