The Isle of Wight has its own council that covers matters such as school holiday dates across the island, separate from the onshore council areas. It is a unitary authority based in County Hall, Newport. It has responsibility for 41 primary schools and 10 secondary schools as well as three special schools and one further education college, the Isle of Wight College, though this has some independence around holiday dates. The academic year starts 5th September and runs until 16th December for the first autumn term which includes the October half term from 24th to 28th. There is a break for Christmas until 3rd January and the spring term runs until the Easter break 2017 on 7th April with the February half term from 20th to 24th. The final summer term runs from 24th April until 25th July with the mid-term holiday May 29th until June 2nd.

The Inset Days for the Local Education Authority Schools in Isle of Wight are decided by the individual schools. Isle of Wight Data Source
