dd's pead is leaving and on friday it is her farewell do, dd and I have been invited. it takes place between 12 and 2. dd finishes school at 3.30 then goes on the bust for about an hour. so I thought wouldn't it be nice if she came home with me(20 min car trip instead)
now last week it was prize giving and parents were told they could take their dc's home.
so I have asked if it would be ok, and I have to fill in a form, the type you fill in for a hloiday....... is this mad or what
Are you taking your daughter out of school at lunchtime to go to the leaving do? In that case, I think it is perfectly normal for your dd's school to ask you to fill in a form. We have to do this at the dc's school if we take them out for music exams, visits to secondary school etc. It is signed and a copy kept in their file, presumably so that if necessary, they can prove that their authorised absence forms are accurate.
I had to fill in a form to send ds in late after the Bruce Springsteen concert, 2shoes. Although the head did agree with me that it would be a good 'educational' experience for him. It's all to do with authorised/unauthorised. Your form in their file means they can record it as 'authorised' which looks better for the stats.
