Following the Brighton and Hove Committee meeting on Monday 6 June, the consultation on term dates for 2017/18 has been launched.
The committee supported the recommendations in the report that proposed to introduce a new week’s school holiday during term-time, on a trial basis, during the academic years 2017-18 and 2018-19.
The three options for the new week’s holiday during 2017-18 are the weeks commencing:
- Monday 16 October 2017;
- Monday 20 November 2017; or
- Monday 5 March 2018.
The new holiday would be created by saving five days from existing holiday periods.
