The Committee considered the petition for the first time and agreed to note it and the correspondence received.


The Committee decided to take no further action on the petition given that a review which was due to consider the school year has been delayed due to the pandemic, the Minister for Education’s assertion that she cannot commit further resources to this at the current time and the fact that Ministers do not currently have a formal role in setting term date. In doing so it was agreed to close the petition and thank the petitioner.
