As a experienced foster mum over the last 10 years I have worked in partnership with a variety of different local authorities. One issue is apparent that children in care are being discriminated against when it comes to taking children out of school during term time now not for a second would I advocate that all children should be given flexibility on being allowed out of school as education is extremely important. But their is a large group of people like myself that pride myself on my children having 100% attendance and believe strongly that considering the complex needs of many children these should be treated on a case by case basis rather than the one size fits all approach that in turn discriminates against some of the most vulnerable children. Should we not think of the benefit of being given new experiences! Meeting new people! Enjoying a quality family experience rather than forced respite these children are no different from any other  so my question is why are they being treated differently
