Summer School Holidays Consultation

Final Consultation on Summer School Holidays 2021- 2025
In May 2019 the Education Operations Committee considered the public feedback on the school holiday pattern. They approved retaining the general pattern of school holidays of previous years with the exception of bringing the summer holidays forward by one week. The Committee requested that further consultation should be sought to agree when the summer holidays should start from 2020-21 to 2024-25.
We are seeking the views of all parents, school staff and children and young people.
The survey opens Monday 9th September 2019 till Friday 20th September 2019. The link to the survey is available here

*** Information – Internet Safety ***

 

There are a lot of concerns these days about keeping children and young people safe online. With this in mind, and to protect your child from harmful content on the internet, we recommend that you talk with your child on an ongoing basis about what he or she is accessing and about how to stay safe online.  Reminding your child to tell you about anything upsetting that they encounter online is very important.  Having regular and open dialogues about what your child is accessing will encourage them to talk to you if they feel unsafe or uncomfortable with any content online or bullying behaviours. 

Monitoring of your child’s devices can also help to ensure they are safe online.   Seemingly innocent and harmless children’s apps and videos can be used to share disturbing content and to encourage children to contact individuals that they do not know.  Regular monitoring of your child’s devices will bring this to your attention quickly and allow you to take appropriate action.
