A Lincolnshire school has become one of the first

:00:07.:00:09.

in the country to break away from traditional summer terl times.

:00:10.:00:13.

White's Wood Academy in Gainsborough says it won't only improve learning,

:00:14.:00:17.

but will also mean that pardnts can take children on cheaper holidays

:00:18.:00:21.

The last day of term at White's Wood Academy in Gainsborough, but next

:00:22.:00:30.

year term times will change, which will allow children to have

:00:31.:00:34.

more breaks but also enable families to go on holiday more cheaply.

:00:35.:00:39.

It is helpful because obviously cheaper holidays means more

:00:40.:00:43.

Now the summers are shorter and they are adding holidays on, it will be

:00:44.:00:49.

The Academy Trust which runs the school has changed next year's term

:00:50.:00:54.

dates so that holidays are shorter and they fall outside the standard

:00:55.:00:58.

school holiday period, which means that parents will be able to buy a

:00:59.:01:03.

family holiday without the hnflated prices. We started off with looking

:01:04.:01:08.

at a maximum learning model, so that is how we started off.

:01:09.:01:11.

Then we consulted parents to see what changes they want,

:01:12.:01:15.

because we are always asking parents ` this is their children's school `

:01:16.:01:18.

It was about the children being ill and tired near Christmas and about

:01:19.:01:24.

us not having that long sumler break and the lack of learning, because

:01:25.:01:29.

children actually drop quite a lot of learning in those six wedks.

:01:30.:01:33.

But you can't underestimate the difference between school holiday

:01:34.:01:36.

The cost of taking a family of three to Majorca

:01:37.:01:41.

Whereas out of school holidays, the same break is ?670.

:01:42.:01:50.

The school says changing term times is not just about holiday prices,

:01:51.:01:57.

But the thought of saving money is certainly bringing

:01:58.:02:02.

Tonight I spoke to Julie Davies from the National Union of Teachers,

:02:03.:02:12.

and asked whether this was a win`win situation for schools,

:02:13.:02:16.

I'm not sure that all of those things are quite true.

:02:17.:02:22.

For example, I've got three children and at

:02:23.:02:24.

various times in their school lives they've been at different schools.

:02:25.:02:27.

If all schools set their own holidays, ostensibly you

:02:28.:02:30.

can have three schools with three different holidays ` that could turn

:02:31.:02:33.

Are you one of these teachers who spoke out, that thinks it is wrong

:02:34.:02:39.

to lose the six`week long school holiday, because teachers

:02:40.:02:42.

Teachers who commonly work 56`60 hours a week

:02:43.:02:49.

on average over the 52`week year, are exhausted at the end of term.

:02:50.:02:53.

The headmistress said this would lead to better attendance.

:02:54.:03:04.

Anything that means fewer children taken out of school,

:03:05.:03:07.

Clearly the situation regarding attendance can't be proven

:03:08.:03:12.

because this is a new situation and we don't know about that.

:03:13.:03:15.

I agree that anything that improves attendance

:03:16.:03:18.

I am just not sure that shortening school holidays will do that.

:03:19.:03:23.

You don't think this is a good idea, do you?

:03:24.:03:26.

Julie Davies from the National Union of Teachers, talking earlier.

:03:27.:03:32.

The hunt for John Heald ` who police want to speak to

:03:33.:03:36.

in connection with the murder of a Bridlington guest housd owner `

:03:37.:03:39.

Today, police revealed that he's also

:03:40.:03:43.

wanted in connection with a serious sexual assault, which took place

:03:44.:03:46.

in South Yorkshire about a week before the murder of Bei Carter

:03:47.:03:52.

The number of patients waiting for hospital treatment in

:03:53.:03:55.

East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire has gone up by almost 10,000 people

:03:56.:03:58.

Our health correspondent Vicky Johnson has been looking

:03:59.:04:02.

After being referred by a doctor, the government says you shotld be

:04:03.:04:07.

But the number of people waiting longer th`n this

:04:08.:04:11.

has more than doubled at sole of our hospital trusts over the past year.

:04:12.:04:15.

Last May, there were 1866 people who had been waiting too long at

:04:16.:04:20.

At the same point this year, that number had almost doubled to 3669.

:04:21.:04:28.

That means out of a total waiting list of almost 38,000 peopld,

:04:29.:04:33.

Sheila Hall was first diagnosed with severe anaemia last August

:04:34.:04:42.

Her GP referred her to the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals

:04:43.:04:45.

for tests, which were eventually completed in January.

:04:46.:04:48.

She then spent more than six months waiting for another appointment to

:04:49.:04:52.

You just think you've got lost in the system and you do constantly

:04:53.:04:59.

worry that there may be some serious problem, and that in the tile you

:05:00.:05:05.

Sheila's experience is far from unique.

:05:06.:05:09.

There are now thousands of patients across East Yorkshire

:05:10.:05:12.

and Lincolnshire who are kept waiting longer than

:05:13.:05:15.

the government's target of 18 week referral to treatment times.

:05:16.:05:20.

Although nationally the Department of Health sees waiting times

:05:21.:05:23.

as a performance measure, for the individual patient it's an element

:05:24.:05:27.

of their own well`being, their own future, their own peace of lind so

:05:28.:05:32.

it is hugely important that if they are told they are having

:05:33.:05:36.

follow`up appointments and it will be within X weeks,

:05:37.:05:38.

Hospital managers insist they are working hard to improve

:05:39.:05:43.

This isn't a problem particular to our area.

:05:44.:05:49.

Other hospitals across the country are seeing the same increases.

:05:50.:05:52.

It seems to be a combination of rising patient demand combined with

:05:53.:05:57.

But some of our trusts have now agredd to

:05:58.:06:02.

invest more money on increasing both the number of outpatient clhnics

:06:03.:06:05.

The Commonwealth Games have just opened with a spectacular cdremony

:06:06.:06:14.

in Glasgow ` with ten athletes from East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

:06:15.:06:18.

Our sports reporter Simon Clark is there.

:06:19.:06:23.

What has the reaction been to the ceremony there?

:06:24.:06:30.

It was long, but it had plenty in it and here we have seen a combination

:06:31.:06:40.

of concert and noise and excitement, and even briefly the Queen's bat on

:06:41.:06:46.

and think of those athletes from East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire who

:06:47.:06:48.

have taken part in the biggdst East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire who

:06:49.:06:51.

have taken part in the biggest party that Scotland has laid on.

:06:52.:06:57.

Smart as smart could be, that was Glasgow this summer's evening.

:06:58.:06:59.

Many of Scotland's top acts performed, in a fine show,

:07:00.:07:02.

Then the athletes, a proud day for Anglo`Scot Dan Coultas,

:07:03.:07:07.

I was lucky enough to be selected for a trial for Scotland

:07:08.:07:12.

I never thought I would play for the senior team.

:07:13.:07:17.

Hull's Alex Smith hopes Glasgow can inspire him to gold in the hammer.

:07:18.:07:25.

You want to do your best in these events.

:07:26.:07:28.

Hopefully I'm in peak physical form in time for Glasgow.

:07:29.:07:35.

In the pool, look out for the Lincoln duo of Sophie Allen and her

:07:36.:07:40.

I am happy with what I see on paper, which is a great position to be in.

:07:41.:07:49.

You don't want to be thinking that is not quite me.

:07:50.:07:53.

Competition starts tomorrow with hockey, but the Games are under

:07:54.:07:58.

Let me tell you about the hockey. It involves Georgy Twigg, from Lincoln.

:07:59.:08:14.

England's women come into this competition after a very poor World

:08:15.:08:17.

Cup, so they need to put a marker in Cup, so they need to put a larker in

:08:18.:08:21.

the sand against Wales tomorrow. If the sand against Wales tomorrow. If

:08:22.:08:28.

they do well they could win a medal. Sorry that we are so late, but let

:08:29.:08:35.

better late than never. Now the weather forecast.

:08:36.:08:41.

It looks like tomorrow should be another lovely day, although there

:08:42.:08:45.

could still be some low clotd and mist persisting in some areas.

:08:46.:08:48.

That low cloud and mist pulling inland tonight,

:08:49.:08:50.

with the exception perhaps of the far south of Lincolnshire.

:08:51.:08:52.

Thursday, a grey start in places but the low

:08:53.:08:55.

A little bit of sea mist left across parts of the Yorkshire coast

:08:56.:09:00.

but in general visibility is better along the coast in the afternoon.

:09:01.:09:03.

Little to change things Friday and Saturday.

:09:04.:09:06.

Thank you for watching. We `re back in the morning. It is the morning!

:09:07.:09:26.

At 6:25am. Please join us then. I will see you at the same tile

:09:27.:09:29.

tomorrow night, goodbye. from the north. The national picture

:09:30.:09:31.

comes from Philip Avery. Unusually, I can say good morning.

:09:32.:09:47.

Wednesday has been noticeable for a number of reasons. From a

:09:48.:09:50.

meteorological point of view, it was the warmest day of the year for

:09:51.:09:55.

Wales and Northern Ireland. Nothing like it across the East of Scotland,

:09:56.:09:58.

where the temperature was locked firmly into the mid-teens thanks to

:09:59.:10:02.

the presence of the low cloud and fog. It is there again as it has

:10:03.:10:08.

been, making inroads through the Clyde Valley is, to the Tyne Valley

:10:09.:10:12.

and areas east of the Pennines. Another very close night, 17, 18 or

:10:13.:10:19.

19, something of that order. It will take some time on Thursday morning

:10:20.:10:22.

but we will see some of this low cloud creeping towards the eastern

:10:23.:10:25.

shores and into the north-east of England. Around the eastern shores

:10:26.:10:31.

of Scotland and the Northern Isles, it will stick. At the opposite end

:10:32.:10:34.

of the country, things may come together. Some moisture, breezes

:10:35.:10:38.

coming together and some heat, it could produce some violent and

:10:39.:10:42.

thundery showers. The risk of thunderstorms comes as far east as

:10:43.:10:46.

the Hampshire border. For many of
