When does the summer holiday start for schools in South Tyneside?
The final few weeks of term started on Monday, June 5 and the remainder of the school year will see seven weeks of learning in classrooms across the area.
Students will then return for the new academic year on Monday, September 4, giving six full weeks off to anyone in education.
These dates are set by each school and, although it is recommended to abide by the same dates as other educators, it is not a requirement. Individual school term dates can be found on the website of each individual school across the region. Schools will often send letters or messages to parents to share the latest news regarding term dates.
Pupils are expected to spend 190 days or 38 weeks in school each year with five extra days reserved for the training of teachers and support staff.
