Summer School Holidays Consultation

Final Consultation on Summer School Holidays 2021- 2025

In May 2019 the Education Operations Committee considered the public feedback on the school holiday pattern. They approved retaining the general pattern of school holidays of previous years with the exception of bringing the summer holidays forward by one week. The Committee requested that further consultation should be sought to agree when the summer holidays should start from 2020-21 to 2024-25.

We are seeking the views of all parents, school staff and children and young people.

The survey opens Monday 9th September 2019 till Friday 20th September 2019. The link to the survey is available here
