Renfrewshire School holidays are always fun, even if they’re just for a day. They give you time to catch up on the latest movies, try out the hottest gaming titles and see friends from other schools.
However, none of these holiday events will be viable without planning. Also, no planning would work if you don’t know when you’ll be having holidays.
If you’re schooling or enrolling a kid in a Renfrewshire school and you’re curious about when you’ll be having school holidays, you’re at the right place.
This post will outline all the Renfrewshire school holidays that the council has announced yet and when they’re taking place.
Renfrewshire Council School Holidays 2023/24
For every academic session, the Renfrewshire council publishes a schedule including all school holidays in the county. All schools in Renfrewshire adhere to it and take the holidays as required.
If you want to know when you’ll be having holidays and breaks, you can use the Renfrewshire council website or this website.
Here is a list of all Renfrewshire school holidays from the council’s website, along with their dates and the purpose.
Renfrewshire September Weekend (Local Holidays)
The September weekend is usually one of the first holidays of the term after resumption on a regular academic session.
The September weekend marks the middle of the autumn academic session, and it involves taking a Friday and a Monday off from schooling activities.
Councils set the September weekend dates for schools in their vicinity, and for Hampshire, it’s on Friday, September 23rd, 2022, and Monday, September 26th, 2022.
Renfrewshire October Break (Mid Term Break)
The October break marks the end of the academic session in October. It’s a week-long holiday that commences from Monday, October 17th, to Monday, October 24th, 2022.
It’s one of the lengthier holidays for Scottish students outside those set aside to celebrate a religious event like Christmas or Easter.
Renfrewshire October In-Service Day
The in-service day is a holiday to students, but teachers and other non-teaching staff must show up at work regardless.
While some in-service days take place during the holidays, the ones that interrupt academic activities are the most noteworthy.
One of these noteworthy in-service days is the one that takes place in the middle of October, precisely Monday, October 24th, 2022.
Since students are generally absent on in-service days, there is more time for staff meetings and teachers to grade students’ tests.
Renfrewshire Christmas/New Year Holiday
The Christmas and New Year’s Holidays start towards the end of the calendar year before Christmas and end after New Year.
This holiday lasts for two weeks, making it one of the lengthiest holidays for the session.
Schools across Renfrewshire will close by 2:30 pm on Thursday, December 22nd, 2022, to commence the holidays. The schools will resume on Wednesday, January 4th, 2023.
Renfrewshire February break (Spring Midterm Holiday)
After the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays, Renfrewshire schools won’t have another break until Monday, February 13th, 2023.
Of course, this isn’t Valentine’s break, it is to mark the middle of the Spring term, and like other midterm breaks, it lasts for two days.
Schools won’t open on Monday, February 13th, 2023, and Wednesday, February 15th, 2023, to mark the middle of the Spring term.
Renfrewshire Easter/Spring Break
The lengthiest break for the 2023/24 session is a joint one; for the Spring Break and to commemorate Easter.
This break lasts for almost three weeks, starting with a 2:30 pm closure on Monday, Monday 3rd, 2023. It continues until Wednesday, April 14th, 2023, when all schools reopen and resume academic activities.
This holiday is the best opportunity for vacations, picnics, visitations, and similar activities that you’ve always wanted to do.
Renfrewshire May Day
There is also a holiday for all Lanarkshire schools on Monday, May 1st, 2023 and Tuesday, May 2nd, 2023, to commemorate the May Day celebration of the previous day and also staff only day.
May Day marks International Workers Day for all workers around the world. While the day happens to be a Sunday, schools and related institutions can take the closest working day off to commemorate the day.
This holiday is the first of the three holidays in May, making it the month with the most holidays in the year.
The Public holiday And Queen’s Jubilee Holiday
The Queen’s Jubilee holiday marks the anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s reign. It usually takes place on June’s third day every year, but a public holiday on a preceding day will make it look longer than it is.
These holidays will make for a four-day weekend, starting from Thursday.
Renfrewshire Summer Break
On Tuesday, June 27th, 2023, all schools in Renfrewshire will close by 1 pm for the summer break.
The council hasn’t decided on the resumption date after this break, and the best bet is waiting for an official confirmation
