What's your plan if your DC is sick?

If you have to stay home with a sick DC do you have to take this as annual leave?

I am thinking of applying for a term-time only job where I imagine taking leave during term-time wouldn't be allowed.

If it's part time term time only you may be able to work additional hours on other days to make time up if your employer needs/allows this. That said you do need back up plan - can their dad take annual leave, can grandparents help etc? While a good employer will be flexible for emergencies, these should be few, far between and short in duration.
