Hold Inset days during school holidays to train teachers

I do not understand why INSET days are outside the school holidays. Teachers already get a ridiculous amount of holidays so why can't they be trained during the holidays?

My children had 7 weeks summer holidays , including 2 INSET  days before the holidays and one on this MOnday.

It is very difficult for parents to organise childcare during these days so please can you do something about this.

school holidays

reducing the summer holiday to 4wks.  the government want us single mums to get back to work!!well some of us try.

i work for a very successfull "dragon" and although the company is very accomodating and supportive during holidays the 6/7 week stint is gruelling when trying to juggle a demanding job and motherhood.

not to mention the expence of child care!

would it not be more in line with the modern world to look at reducing this holiday to make it more workable for all,by all i also include familys with mums and dads who also have to work often having to split holidays to cover this long period and not able to have a holiday together!

on one of the comments it mentions the cost would still be the same,yes it would but it would be spread out!!!life is hard enough without the extra challenges.

teachers may deserve a justified break.dont we all?

Do not prosecute parents for taking children out of school for a holiday

I believe it is very unfair not to allow parents to take their children out of school during term-time and to be made to feel a criminal for doing so. Every child should be allowed 2 weeks out of school a year.

Withdraw restrictions regarding school holidays

Allow parents to take children out of school when they wish for holidays. In other words return to how the system used to be and stop telling parents what to do.
