Consultation on new school holidays

From Brighton & Hove News

Parents are being asked to have their say on plans to shift school holidays around to create a week off during the off-peak season.

The proposals have been drawn up in response to Brighton mum Annie Heath’s suggestion for ways to make taking a holiday cheaper for families.
