    Default Supreme Court upholds term-time ban on holidays

    Excellent news.
    Means those of us with kids in private schools can escape the plebs AND get cheaper holidays at the same time

    Im torn both ways on this - as far as Im concerned if your kids are doing alright and have good attendance then you should be able to have that holiday during term time (with some limitations on when i.e upcoming exams)

    On the other hand my lads are past this now and my daughter breaks up at the start of July so I'm with sasguru on this one and I don't want my cheap holidays going up in price......

    Labour want to put VAT on school fees. What are the chances your kids are still of school age when they next get in?
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    Ah but don't forget you'll be paying VAT on school fees, when Steptoe gets into power (which fullyautomatix assures us will be soon, and not before time!)
    Work in the public sector? Read the IR35 FAQ here

    The cost of the former outweighs the latter.

    Made the mistake of taking the kids to Legoland on a weekday in July, after the UK private schools broke up but before the state schools did, and it was full of the most ghastly parents with their weirdly dressed whiny kids. If we go again (and hopefully never again) it will be before the private schools break up as well.

    What I don't understand is how schools can send children on school trips - skiing, LEGOLAND, etcetc where there is no educational value. But families cannot do that themselves.

    I think you're making this up. Private school parents would never take their kids to Legoland, darlink.
