To want unauthorised children's leave spaces to go to the next place in the queue?

If you value your children's education so lowly, I assume you don't mind their space being taken?

Pardon???

nancy75 Tue 20-Oct-15 21:35:11

Is your child on a waiting list by any chance?

Lauren15 Tue 20-Oct-15 21:36:53

What do you mean?

Only1scoop Tue 20-Oct-15 21:36:58

Eh?

Do you mean your dc are on a waiting list for a school and you'd like pupils with unauthorised absences to lose their places so your dc would get a place?

Oh God. It's going to be one of those threads.

Op clearly didn't get first choice despite living in catchment. Child who did has been on a term time holiday. Op now frothing.

OK. A week in disneyland wins. Very educational. Fella that overturned the ruling I his instance already has 2 kids in private schools. Do others have the option?

HeySoulSister Tue 20-Oct-15 21:45:43

Well if that child is absent continually then yes, I can see your point

angelos02 Tue 20-Oct-15 21:46:31

By the way, I don't have any children. Couldn't afford them.

Chippednailvarnish Tue 20-Oct-15 21:47:37

I'm going to Disneyland! has no fucking idea what the OP is on about

coffeeisnectar Tue 20-Oct-15 21:48:28

So the point of this thread is what??

Only1scoop Tue 20-Oct-15 21:48:34

Sorry I'm unable to fathom your posts.

So not sure Yabu or not.

I have a vague idea that some countries do in fact do this - take away a child's place in a school if there is unauthorised absence. Happy to be corrected.

If you don't have kids why on earth do you give a flying fuck about school places? Seriously pre child this would not have even been on the edge of my radar

ouryve Tue 20-Oct-15 21:54:59

Why do you care?

I think we can all agree that the best thing for children with a disrupted education, due to reasons beyond their control, is to take their school place away and send them to a school that they have even less chance of getting to regularly.
