The Governing Body at Blenheim would like to consult with you about possible changes to our term dates for 2018-19. Until now, we have followed the Southend Borough Council dates for maintained schools, but as an academy we have the flexibility to change these in order to meet the needs of the school community. The proposed changes will not be drastic; they will essentially involve adjusting term dates and INSET days slightly in order to provide an additional week's holiday in either October or June. This additional week would become a two week break for half-term. The proposed changes will be under review each year; next year, the term dates allow the changes to be made easily, but there will be years when it is not possible to follow a similar model.
