After school - term dates

After school fees are based on the published Oxfordshire County Council term dates as published at (Opens in another tab)

Inset days, when the school is also closed, are based on St Swithuns as published at (Opens in another tab)

If your school term dates differ from these, you should not be charged extra for additional term time sessions, but equally you may be charged for days when your child is on holiday compared with these dates.
