§ 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.
