SCHOOL HOLIDAY DATES 2018
Wales School Holiday dates are very important dates. Who says so? well, the school kids for a start.
There has been arguments over many years about taking children out of school for holidays during the term. This can lead to prosecution, in some cases. There have even been long, drawn out, court cases where parents have challenged the policy of taking their children out of school during official school terms.
Parents who are going abroad for their holidays face hikes in prices for foreign travel. Sometimes the prices are hiked so high, people can’t afford a trip abroad during the summer holiday breaks. This leads to some decisions that are conflicting with the law.
So, it is important to plan ahead. Check out the school holiday breaks for Wales and then check out our Royal Forest of Dean Lodges for those periods. Plan ahead and book ahead, that way you won’t be disappointed.
