Katie Barrett started this petition to Department of Education

The dreaded six weeks holidays ...... we have the added expense of keeping the kids entertained and in extraining snacks for a whole six weeks , while trying to find the money to kit them out for the new school year, pay for extra childcare in one go or of we are lucky enough rely on family or friends to help with the kids while we work !! Wouldn't it make more sense of these holidays were shortened and we got say, an extra week at Christmas  (because we all know that holiday is too short !) And maybe am extra week added onto one of the other holidays during the school year !? It would be far better for the parents and the children who are bored / fed up and bickering with their siblings for a majority of the last few weeks!  Most of the primary school aged children I have spoken to were ready to go back and have the routine and structure of school back in their lives after around week 3/4! Please if you agree with me pop your name on this Petition, because I'm sure I'm not the only parent who is tired and fed up of the struggles of the six week break !!! From one fed up skint parent to another I hope we can get the department for education to listen because it's not the same as 50 years ago when mum's stayed at home full time, our summer break needs to be modernised to fit in with modern day family life !!
