Why We Are Consulting

Resources and People Services (Education) are consulting on the draft school session dates for 2018/19 to seek stakeholder views on these draft dates.

We are consulting on only one year (2018/19) as we understand our neighbouring authorities (Edinburgh City Council and Midlothian Council) are doing likewise and we have been in discussion with them on our proposed dates for 2018/19.  We will liaise further with them to look at, as far as we possibly can, harmonising the school session dates across the 3 local authority areas 

Further collobration will take place in determinating dates beyond 2018/19 and this will be subject to a further consultation in due course. 


What Happens Next

Following the close of the consultion a report will be taken to the November 2017 Education Committee for approval.  Thereafter the approved school session dates for 2018/19 will be published on the Council's website and sent out to schools. and Parent Councils.
