HC Deb 20 July 1982 vol 28 c129W
40. Mr. Speller

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the present minimum number of days per year for which a maintained school must remain open.

Dr. Boyson

The Education (Schools and Further Education) Regulations 1981 require maintained schools to operate for the equivalent of at least 200 days a year; that number may be reduced by the equivalent of up to 10 days for occasional holidays granted in term time.
