Last night we received a letter from school. The law has changed. The school are no longer allowed to authorise family holidays in school term time. What do you think about this?
Personally… I think it’s ridiculous! I’m someone who missed over a year of school and didn’t take my SAT’s (because I was having Chemotherapy), but still got 9 GSCE’s, 3 A Levels, an AS Level and a 2:1 honours degree (amongst a few additional vocational certificates). I don’t think missing a week of school makes any difference to a child’s education.
Furthermore, I feel it should be a parent’s choice, whether or not they take their child out of school for a holiday.
