Cardiff Council has met today to discuss changes to school holidays.

The council decided not to hold a wider public consultation, but to instead refer its proposal to change term-time dates directly to The Welsh Government's Education Secretary, Kirsty Williams AM.

The council says the cost of a holiday is 'disproportionally more expensive when schools are off'.

The council did approve a recommendation to schools that they amend their inset day dates as they see fit.
