Oooohhh the cheek!! I applied for ‘holiday’ leave on Friday for Jake so we can go to my cousins wedding this weekend. And it has been refused!! The letter says “Any absence from school will be marked as unauthorised and referred to the educational welfare service who may issue a penalty notice of up to £100”
I am fuming. What kind of person thinks they can have the power to stop me taking my child out of school for ONE day to attend a wedding FFS?
Of course we shall be going anyway. To hell with them. Sometimes home education looks like a really attractive alternative.
Is this normal, this kind of heavy handed, over the top control of absences? Or is this special to our control hungry headteacher?!
