Original consultation

This consultation seeks your views on the proposed term dates and draft direction. Your contributions will help to ensure that we get the right set of dates in place for our maintained schools in Wales.

Consultation description

We are aware of the difficulties faced by many familiesĀ as a result of variations in school term dates and therefore school holidays.

In order to address these concerns Welsh Ministers have used the Education (Wales) Act 2014 to make legislative changes to how term dates are set in order to enable harmonisation of school term dates for all maintained schools.

These changes mean that local authorities and the governing bodies of voluntary aided and foundation schools can be directed by the Welsh Ministers on what their term dates must be if those dates are not harmonised or if they need changing.
