Schools are entitled to 1 additional occasional day for 2021/22 due to the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

For 2022 only, schools must be open for 189 pupil days due to the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee providing an additional Bank Holiday. The regulations are here:
The Education (School Day and School Year) (England) (Coronavirus) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 No. 541 (
Regulation 3(2) of these Regulations amends regulation 3(6) of the 1999 Regulations and inserts a new paragraph (7). The effect is to reduce the minimum number of sessions which must be held in the school year 2021-2022 from 380 to 378. This is to enable relevant schools to close for the additional bank holiday announced on 12th November 2020 to take place on 3rd June 2022 to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen. This amendment also preserves similar reductions that were made in previous regulations for the school years 2010-2011 and 2011-2012.
To update your calendar on BSO please email with the date you would like to take your additional day.
