Welsh Lib Dems welcome decision to shelve school calendar changes

Today (4th June 2024) the Welsh Liberal Democrats have welcomed the news that there will be no immediate changes to school calendars in Wales.

Plans to cut the school summer holiday from six to five weeks have been shelved by the Welsh Government following strong opposition from teaching unions.

Commenting, the Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats Jane Dodds MS said:

“I am pleased to hear that the Welsh Government has listened to the serious concerns raised over these proposals.

Changes of such a seismic scale risked adding further pressure onto the shoulders of teachers and schools that are already being weighed down by the long-lasting impact of Covid on education.

Any future reforms must be seriously scrutinised, and stress tested so that we know our children are receiving the very best education possible”.
