I dont normally agree with this but my dad has offered to take us all to DisneyLand for a week and I really want to go. Where does the law stand on this does anyone know. TIA. I am losing sleep over this,.
You need to ask the school. The absence can be authorised at the discretion of the head teacher. They usually want a reason, and can be stroppy if the reason is wishy washy (you might find that if the reason is disney)
I took dd1 out of school for 2 weeks in May of her primary one year, to go to a very good friends wedding in Canada. that got the OK, but I had to take work for her, her teacher asked her to keep a diary of her holiday adn she did a little talk to the class when she got back about it.
Be prepared for them not to like it very much, but you can take them out regardless.
You might find the school will be a little less accomodating to other requests you might have, though.
