This survey aims to find out what parents/carers, pupils and staff think about the timing of school holidays and how the school year should look. The responses will help to shape future school years.

Why We Are Consulting

The survey aims to gather the views of parents/carers, pupils and staff so that their views are taken into account in the shaping of the school year for 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22.


What Happens Next

Responses will be collated and brought back to the Education, Children and Families Committee, along with proposed session dates for 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22.
