Always check Ivanhoe term dates on this website – other websites may not be accurate.

Our term dates are usually agreed well in advance and we work closely with our local partner primary and secondary schools to ensure that the dates are agreed across the area. As an academy, we have the freedom to set our term dates and we always base this on the LA framework although there are some differences. Ivanhoe Governors ensure that decisions about term and holiday dates are based on educational grounds and that we try to even out term lengths as far as is possible.

Dates to note, variance from Leicestershire LA dates:

2017-18 and 2018-19       Half term break in October is one week later due to the length of the term before Christmas.

2018-19                              The Easter break is one week later due to the lateness of Easter that year.

Heads and governors of our local partner schools felt that the pattern we have adopted provided the best educational option for our students, within the outline framework of the Leicestershire pattern.

We understand that changes to term dates will affect some families more than others and that this can be an area of our work in which we may not be able to please everyone. There are many different issues involved in setting out the term dates and we will continue to work with our partner schools and to publish all term dates well in advance.
