Knowsley school term dates

Term dates for Knowsley primary, secondary and special schools from 2019 to 2021.

Knowsley Local Authority sets the term dates for community primary and special schools within the borough. Within the dates outlined below, each individual school will hold five staff training days, also known as INSET days, throughout the academic year, and will be closed to pupils on these days. To check these dates, please visit your child's school website for further information or contact the school directly.​

It is hoped that the dates set by the Local Authority will also be adopted by all Academies and Voluntary Aided schools in Knowsley, in order to ensure consistency for our families.

Note - please also confirm your child’s school term dates with their individual school.

Covid-19 – please be aware that the dates below relate to a typical school year. Schools are currently operating within government guidance and may not be open to all pupils or operating in the typical way during the current pandemic. Your child’s school will keep you informed of any arrangements in place regarding when they will be open for children to attend.
