Councillors in Nottingham are today expected to give final approval to controversial changes to the school year in the city.

Teaching unions are meeting with Nottingham City Council today over plans to introduce a five term academic year.
Protests have already been held against the plans but the NUT union warn that if no agreement can be found strike action could be taken.
