The unions don’t like it, with some justification, but it is essential for children - and their teachers - to reconnect before the summer holidays.
The summer holidays could and perhaps should provide time to catch up on a term’s work missed.
So why not regard the summer holidays as the fourth term - and provide a full educational programme alongside the more traditional summer activity courses?
This “term” would not be compulsory for pupils or teachers, who would be paid extra to teach over this period.
It would be a very useful source of extra income bearing in mind the almost inevitable loss of the international summer school market.
U.K. staycations will be very popular this year- so why not make your school a staycation destination.
Education and entrepreneurship in action!
