Thousands of people in Harborough are being asked - when do you think school holidays in Leicestershire should fall?

You are being asked the key question as Leicestershire County Council launches a consultation on school term and holiday dates for autumn 2022 through to summer 2027.

The in-depth exercise gives you the chance to choose from a number of options, including sticking to regular patterns.

The closing date for the survey is midnight on Sunday July 18.

Cllr Deborah Taylor, Leicestershire County Council Cabinet member for Children and Families, said: “The current term dates are ending.

“So we need to review these and make sure we have dates in place that work in the best way possible for young people and their families who live in and / or attend school in the local area.

“This is your chance to have your say.”

She added: “We’ve worked with the city council to align our consultations as we know people sometimes live / work and go to school across the boundaries of both areas.

"Your feedback is really valuable and will help us see if we need to maintain current arrangements or align term times differently.”
