Two Week October Break Confirmation

Dear Parents and Carers

I am writing to you in relation to the proposed 2 week October Break from 2018.

Following the survey conducted in May, there were 178 responses from parents and carers, 120 of these were in agreement with a reduced Summer Break of 5 weeks and an extra week’s holiday in October.

Governors met on 12th July 2017 and ratified the decision to move to a 2 week October Break from 2018.

I am writing to give you advance notice to allow you time to plan holidays outside of term time. The first week of the October Break will coincide with the Kent Half Term (22nd to 26th October 2018) and the second week will follow on (29th October to 2nd November 2018).

I would like to thank all parents and carers for their responses and comments in relation to this change.

As soon as we are able, we will publish the DSTC 2018/19 calendar.

Yours sincerely Mrs Anne Davis

Principal
