Bedfordshire Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council operate a three tier system of education. Children normally begin their primary education at a lower school which serves the area where they live i.e. the school serving the local catchment area.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these school half term holiday dates are accurate, there are occasions when circumstances beyond our control may result in changes. Always check school opening dates with your school and local education authority.
