Leicester City Council is consulting on school term and holiday date patterns and we would like to know your views on a range of options prepared by our Working Party. The Working Party includes representation from headteachers, governors and school based staff.
In accordance with our usual practice, we are consulting on arrangements for a three year period covering the academic years 2015/16 to 2017/18 inclusive. The options are set out in the documents attached below.
UPDATE: On 6th May, Leicestershire County Council took a decision on term dates for their schools. The dates they have selected match Option C in our consultation exercise for each year.
Why We Are Consulting
Leicester City’s proposed date pattern options reflect our core principles and seek to ensure that they support effective teaching and learning for City children. These core principles are set out in the document attached below.
When devising the options, the Working Party has looked closely at the dates proposed by the Leicestershire County Council and these are included in the range of options for each year.
Three options are presented for each of the academic years. We are asking respondents to rank their views in order of preference for each year.
We hope as many people as possible will respond to this invitation and would encourage participation within schools and the local school community.
What Happens Next
Once the consultation has been completed and all responses have been analysed, it is hoped that the results will be agreed in June 2014.
