school term dates 2021 including half term and holidays

Please note that due to lockdown many schools in the UK will be closed throughout January and into February, except for vulnerable children and children of key workers. Nurseries and other early years settings are still currently open for all children during lockdown. You can read our article on Covid information for parents to find more up-to-date information about school closures and the government’s rules around childcare.

Below are the term dates for most schools during 2021. Some schools may experience closures due to coronavirus, so it’s always best to double-check the dates by contacting the school directly.

While schools are shut, the current government advice allows you to book in-home childcare if you need to – even during lockdown. You can find trusted on-demand sitters and nannies through Bubble – the UK’s #1 childcare app.
