School Easter Holiday Consultation

What are your views on the Easter school holiday in Leeds?

Leeds City Council is seeking your views on the timing of the Easter school holiday for the next few years. Since 2011 Leeds has fixed its school holiday to the first two weeks of April regardless of when the Easter bank holiday weekend falls. Usually it falls somewhere within this break, but once every few years it falls outside. We are now seeking public opinion in order to decide whether to continue with this arrangement or return to an Easter school holiday that moves according to the Easter weekend.

Not all schools have to abide by the dates the council sets. Academies, Free schools, Foundation schools and Voluntary-Aided schools have the authority to set their own dates and will continue to do so regardless of any change the council may make as a result of this consultation.
