Consultation description 

Under the Education (Wales) Act 2014 local authorities and the governing bodies of voluntary aided and foundation schools must work with each other to ensure term dates are the same or as similar as possible. They can also be directed by the Welsh Ministers on what their term dates must be if those dates are not harmonised or if they need changing.

We are consulting on proposed national term dates for 2018/19.
