Very few changes have been made to the school year in the last century, although several other things in our lives have changed a lot. The Welsh Government thinks it’s time to have a conversation about the school year to decide if it’s working for the young people of Wales or not.
Make sure you’re heard
Do you think the way the school year is set out helps you learn and perform to the best of your ability?
What about holidays? Do you think these are balanced well with a long summer holiday and shorter breaks in the winter? Or do you think they would be better if they were spread a bit more evenly?
If you’re aged between 7 and 18 and have an opinion on this, make sure that your voice is heard by filling in a short online survey. You could be a part of shaping the future of education in Wales.
