Term time holidays

This petition had 248 supporters

Hi. Today I received a letter home from school advising me on my families term time holiday. If their overall attendance is 'good over the last 12 months then it will remain unauthorised. If it is less than good our holiday will be referred on to the attendance officer or possibly the Education Welfare Officer'....

These are my children. No one cares more about them or their education than I.

If I decide to take them away thats my choice. 

As a family of 7 we cannot afford Half term prices.

With an autistic child to cater for, we cannot either afford the huge volume of other families cramped in to holiday destinations.

I ask for your signature to raise a collective voice to change the ridiculous rule surrounding our children and their time but also for regulations to made by our Welsh assembly in the management of holiday companies and their prices. 

A half term holiday can be increased by 1000 pounds or more. That's a whole holiday in itself!!

Let's make a stand. Our lives are short. Time with our children is precious...

We should have the choice to make wise decisions regarding when we spend our time with them without repercussions and more importantly that time together shouldn't cost the earth!

Many thanks

Sarah williams.
