               Dear Colleague

                Subject      School Term and Holiday Dates for 2012-2013
                Audience     Headteachers

               Please find attached details of Cambridgeshire term and holiday dates for 2012-
               2013. Two professional days, Monday 3rd September 2012 and Monday 7th January
               2013, have been selected from the 195 days. Schools are required to select three
               further professional days from the remaining 193 days - a pro forma will be sent to
               you at a later date, requesting details of dates selected.

               May I remind colleagues that parents can reasonably expect schools to maintain the
               hours published in their prospectus on each of the 190 statutory days (380 sessions).
               In setting term dates, the County Council continues to adhere to recommendations
               from the Local Government Association (LGA) and liaise with neighbouring
               authorities, headteachers, union representatives and the Diocese to secure the best
               alignment of dates across the region.

               Yours sincerely

               Amanda Askham
