Have a say on school term dates
- Credit: Archant
PARENTS and carers will be able to have a say on term dates under a new law.
Dates for the 2015/16 school year are under review and parents are invited to decide when holidays will be.
Support workers, governors, teachers and headteachers can also comment on the proposed changes.
North Somerset Council agrees term dates with neighbouring authorities on a yearly basis to ensure consistency.
Central Government announced all state schools will be able to individually decide their own term dates in 2015/16.
You may also want to watch:
The proposed calendar still follows a 195-day year, with term one from September 2 to October 23, term two from November 2 to December 18 and term three from January 4 until February 12.
Term four would last from February 22 to April 1, term five would be April 18 to May 27 and term six from June 6 until July 22.
