Lisa Hibberd started this petition to Parents of Hall Orchard Primary School

The current Summer school term is set to close Hall Orchard Primary School on Tuesday 14th of July 2020. Leicestershire County Council has recommended that the 13th and 14th of July 2020 be used as inset day, meaning that the last day of term would be Friday 10th July 2020.The local schools Humphrey Perkins, Rawlins, Redlands, Highgate, Seagrave, Cossington and Thrussington are all finishing on Friday the 10th. 

Families with children at different schools will not benefit from the same holidays, resulting in additional childcare for working parents, and the loss of more affordable holidays, taken in the quieter, less busy first week. 

It is asked that these dates be revised and used as recommended by LCC as inset days. Currently, with the late closure, the Summer holidays are only 5 weeks and 3 days, due to school reopening for 2 parts weeks before and after the bank holiday, opening on 25th August 2020. 

Additionally, with the current inset days structure, being used the Monday after a half term/holiday there is an extra expenditure for childcare needs for working parents. 

We would like to request that the current term dates be reviewed.
