Plans to bring Angus “tattie holidays” into line with neighbouring areas have been shelved after 64% of residents opted for the status quo in a consultation.
Angus Council proposed pushing the traditional October school holidays back seven days, to the second and third weeks in the month, from 2017.
An early consultation had received only 49 responses but, following a report in The Courier, 4,398 people voted at second time of asking and registered strong support for leaving things as they are.
The change would have meant Angus aligning with the same October holiday period as English schools peak season.
The survey’s findings will be presented to members of the children and learning committee on Tuesday.
