Have to take jnr (aged 6 year 1 at primary school) out of school for last 2 weeks of summer term so we can afford to go on holiday.
We have the form to return to the school with reasons for absence - what do we put on it? Do we come clean and take any flak?, do we lie and make up a sob story?
They don't do too much serious work at that time of year and we are happy to take work away for the summer so we can home coach to catch up.
Your advice and reasons for it are welcomed.
