Council leaders across Scotland met today to discuss the possibility of extending the Christmas School Holidays this year by an additional one week on either side of the usual break.
A proposal for this year only to increase holidays from 18th December 2020 through to 11th January 2021 is being considered with a decision by the Scottish Government expected next week.
The proposal due to the current health pandemic, takes account of a quieter week for pupils on the run up to Christmas and designed to limit the spread of Covid-19 after families gather for Christmas.
Have your say. Would YOU welcome these proposals? Will this add pressure to parents and carers?
