School term dates 2006/07 to 2021/22 by local authority

The request was successful.

Dear North Lanarkshire Council,

Please could you provide the school term dates set by your authority between the academic years 2006/07 and 2021/22?

If possible, please could you: (1) supply these dates in .csv or .xlsx (Excel) format; (2) include in-service training days (INSETs) and occasional holidays such as Mid-term and May Day; (3) for each period, list the ‘Open’ date as the first day that schools were open and the ‘Close’ date as the last day that schools were open.

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

Yours faithfully,

Hester Burn

Jacqueline Keachie, North Lanarkshire Council

Dear Ms Burn

Request for Information

I refer again to your email dated 9 February 2023 seeking information in relation to schools.

Having investigated, please find attached the information requested.

Please note that Information for 2008/09 is not held and in terms of Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, I must advise you of this.

I can advise that North Lanarkshire Council, having regard to the provisions of Section 21 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, has established a procedure whereby any person who has requested information and is in any way dissatisfied with the decision on that request, can within forty working days require a review of that decision by writing to the Chief Officer of Legal and Democratic, Civic Centre, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell ML1 1AB. Accordingly, if you are dissatisfied with this decision and seek such review please write to the Chief Officer of Legal and Democratic.

I would advise, also, that in terms of Section 47 of the Act a person who is dissatisfied with a notice given by the local authority under Section 21 of the Act - ie. a notice following a review of a decision by a local authority, or by the failure of a local authority to give such a notice - may make application to the Scottish Information Commissioner for a decision as to whether, in any respect specified in that application, the request for information to which the requirement relates has been dealt with in accordance with the Act. Such an application must be made within six months of the review decision and be in writing or in another form which, by reason of it having some permanency is capable of being used for subsequent reference. The application must state the name of the applicant, and provide an address for correspondence. The application must also specify the request for information to which the requirement for review relates, the matter which gave rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the original decision of the local authority and the matter which gives rise to the applicant’s dissatisfaction with the decision on review by the local authority or the failure of the local authority to issue such a decision. The Scottish Information Commissioner can be contacted as follows:-

Scottish Information Commissioner
Kinburn Castle
Doubledykes Road
St. Andrews
KY16 9DS
email: [email address]

Appeals to the Scottish Information Commissioner can also be made online via the following link: -

I hope this information is sufficient for your purpose. If, however, you require further information – or I can assist in any other way – please let me know.

Yours sincerely
