Revised Session Dates 2021/22

Please find attached draft revised school session dates 2021/22. As part of our collaboration with neighbouring local authorities in preparing our draft school session dates for the three school sessions, 2022/23, 2023/24 and 2024/25, it has come to our attention that City of Edinburgh Council have made an amended to their school session dates for next session, 2021/22.  As the practice in East Lothian is to align as much as possible with City of Edinburgh Council’s dates we have reviewed and amended our dates accordingly.  There are 2 changes to the revised draft dates as follows:

  • Schools will finish on Friday 17th December 2021 (instead of Thursday 23rd December 2021) and return on Wednesday 5th January 2022 (instead of Monday 10th January 2022)
  • Schools will close for the summer break on Friday 1st July 2022 (instead of Thursday 30th June 2022).

If you would like to comment on the revised draft school session dates please email

The closing date for comments is Friday 9th July 2021.
