Calderdale schools are overseen by the Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council, one of the five council areas in West Yorkshire. The council set school term dates and holidays each year, though some schools do have the ability to change these to suit their requirements, such as academies and voluntary aided schools. Currently, there are a total of 117 schools within the council area. This number is composed of 88 primary schools, 18 secondary schools and six special schools. There is also one further education college, the Calderdale College within the area. School started on 5th September and the October half term is from 21st to 31st of the month. Christmas holiday 2016 run from 16th December until 3rd January and the spring term has the half term break from 17th to 27th February. The final summer term runs from 24th April until 25th July and there is the May half term from 26th May until 5th June.

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