|Residents across Leicestershire are being given the opportunity to have their say on their preferred school term and holiday dates from Autumn 2019.
Leicestershire County Council has launched a consultation to capture the views of the public on three suggested options, one of which is to align with patterns in city schools.
The options are:
Councillor Ivan Ould, the county council’s cabinet member for children and families, said: “The current term dates for our schools in the county end in Summer 2019 so, as a result, we’re required to consult on future term dates and I’m encouraging people to have their say.
“The feedback will enable us to determine if we maintain the current arrangements or align school terms with surrounding areas.”
To ensure schools and parents have sufficient notice, the consultation on term-time patterns applies for 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22.
People can have their say at https://www.leicestershire.gov.uk/term-time-consultation or to request a paper copy, call 0116 305 6324 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for consultation submissions is 2 April 2018.
