If your kids are anything like my little one who goes into school and tells the teachers all about her holiday to Disney lol. Next time I will just pay the fine

These holiday company's are a joke when it comes to taking the **** out of parents, it ain't fair unless your rich.. but yet we get threats, and made to feel guily by the schools that they are missing out on education. And and the stupidness it's per parent to pay fines, even know you may not be togther...don't get me started lol


Makes me laugh when people moan about holiday companies charging more in the school holidays. I mean what do you expect them.to do? They already sell out of their holidays for the school holidays dates before any other dates and that's at the higher prices, so for what reason exactly would they want to sell out and make only the half the amount of money they are making?

It's simple supply and demand!

Great price btw but don't get carried away by the splash park as the water temperature will be freezing in early May
Thanks Natzsav and starry15 you’ve just helped me get the love badge
How much is the fine for taking a kid out of school for a week?

Looking to take 2 children June 12tb for a week all inclusive but struggling to see anything suitable on offer anyone got recommendatios
For those worried about school, if you can get a letter from your employer stating this is the period you are permitted leave then the school fine gets waived, contact the school beforehand and they will put you in contact with correct dept, I know as a colleague recently did this and got away without a fine

My friend is a teacher and she actually said once to me that the schools only fine if...

1. The head teacher reports you to the authorities (which many don't if you do it like once a year) based on you actually telling them you are goinf on holiday (does anyone do that?)

Or...

2. The kids need to be off A LOT to flag as a concern - so take the risk once or twice, a few days of school isn't going to damage their learning on future abilities (obviously if its exam time and your kids are older than dont take this advice!!!)

Plus on the off chance you do get fined, it will be significantly cheaper. They can't fine you if your child(ren) is/are 'sick' anyway!

When my daughter was still in school she regularly had days during term time when they closed the school for 'Teachers training' It's a shame the fines don't apply both ways!

That's exactly what I do, we submit the Tesco holiday form which shows in February all the leave she has this year and have never had a request denied yet.

I tried this last year and the school still refused to grant the leave

No just get trained during the holidays, there is enough of them. I bet it’s not far off a full week the kids miss due to teacher training. Plus some schools close for voting etc. Potentially lose a week + a year through no fault of the parent.

What annoys me is that out if all of the holidays they get, why di they always have 'inset' days during term time? It's OK for the kids to be off then.

Your reply sounds like you're a school teacher, please explain to me why teacher training/ inset days could not be done during the 12 weeks that the schools are already closed for??

Training days are for all school staff, including all the support staff (like those in the office) and teaching assistants who don't get paid for the school holidays. Schools can't afford to pay them for other times.

Lesson plans, marking, personal development which aids professional teaching,add that up and add to the 8-16.00 workingday or more they do term term, work out average wage and then consider what an hourly wage is for a professional who is in charge of a future generations education

Never understand peoples mentality towards teachers leave, you could always try training yourself to become a teacher if it's so good.

Not a teacher by the way

You either have more money than sense or work for a holiday company or the government department that created the fines. How is it allowed that people who have families and as a result less money because they have to support their kids are charged more (because they have to go on hols in school holiday periods) than retired people or couples who already have more money because they have less dependants (who go on hols whenever they like)?

My parents used to take me out of school in term time before the fines were brought in and I can honestly say it made no difference to my education. Total farce that is somehow justified by a few people.

So the whole school closes ? In the private sector we do something called stager the time training, why can’t they train a certain amount at a time so the school remains open as we are always told that every day at school is important, or is that only when the parents want to take there kids out ?
Schools shut to train there staff
Schools shut for voting
Schools shut because teachers can’t be arsed to drive in the snow
Schools shut to give teachers more holiday than any other employees
But if the parents take there kids out for a five day holiday they get fined lol
And why is the fine per parent ?

You talk as if we are part of a seperate society !! We all live in the same society where schools are fundemental. Comparing schools to a commercial enterprise is part of the problem, not everything should be driven by money !

I agree it shouldn’t be driven by money the headteacher doesn’t do the job fo 70k plus a year and the teachers don’t do the job for 43k plus a year and the very generous pension ..........

Didn't say i agreed with it, I feel your pain too as I have children. But it's not the fault of the holiday companies. Most big UK holiday companies operate at a loss for their UK operations.

Staggering school holidays by region could be one option but that could also cause problems.

I hate the fact that shops and restaurants etc whack up their prices in December in the run up to Christmas but again it's supply and demand, nobody is forcing us to buy and pay extra

Having a rule were you can take your kids out of school for a holiday once every two years or something would make sense. I've never taken my kids out of school for a holiday... but it would be nice if I could just once without the threat of a fine.
