CAMBRIDGE, UK – May 8, 2014

Relational Schools director Robert Loe appeared yesterday on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire to talk about the length of school holidays.

Speaking on Andie Harper’s Mid-Morning programme, Robert acknowledged the need for reform, but said that any changes should first be carefully considered. He said the issue of school holidays was part of a wider debate around teacher working conditions and pupil wellbeing, and should be considered with these factors in mind.

There were, he said, some common misconceptions surrounding the debate, such as the myth that school terms were historically structured around the agricultural calendar. You can listen to the full interview by clicking on the icon below:
