  1. In most businesses you don’t take your holidays when your customers need you most. What next – a ski instructor taking two weeks off in February for a holiday in the Caribbean?

    Perhaps I’m mistaken, and the workload of a primary school head is lightest at this time of year. But it seems unlikely.

  2. “In most businesses you don’t take your holidays when your customers need you most. “

    That’s because in most businesses, you are eager to keep your customers. But what are they gonna do, go private?

  3. Bar the cvnt from teaching permanently. Those who enforce the system that refuses permission to parents seeking term-time holidays must die by the sword.

    I bet it made not a spit of difference to any pupil’s education but, hey, rools is rools.
