Stoke-on-Trent City Council is currently running a survey to learn of peoples preferences for term dates in 2018/2019. The options are either to continue with the current arrangement or reduce the summer holiday by one week and add an additional week to the October half term. You can let the council know your views here: http://webapps.stoke.gov.uk/snapsurveys/schooltermdates/schooltermdates.htm
