Governing Bodies should determine the inset days and inform the Local Authority of those days. If an election is called and school buildings may be required for use as polling stations, schools will be notified of this by Democratic Services. If schools are used as polling stations and cannot operate whilst polling takes place, one of the inset days must be used on polling day.

This calendar has been drawn up in partnership with St Helens, Knowsley, Wigan, Cheshire East, Cheshire West and Chester, Sefton, Salford, Halton, Liverpool, Warrington and Wirral Councils.

*Under LMS schools’ may decide to vary this recommended model.
