A CONSULTATION on school term times, which could see the summer holiday cut to four weeks, has been launched by the Isle of Wight Council.
Following approval from the council cabinet yesterday (Thursday), the consultation will start on November 24 and run for seven weeks.
Cabinet member for children's services, Cllr Paul Brading, said overhauling term times, by replacing the long summer holiday with longer half term breaks, could improve attendance and attainment - and cut the cost of family holidays.
He appealed to parents, teachers and the public to have their say by taking part in the consultation at www.iwight.com/consultations
Once the responses have been considered, a proposal is due to be brought before the cabinet in March.
