One of the perks of not being in the classroom any more is the ability to take a holiday in term time. Last week I took my first term time holiday, choosing to visit the Lake District.
Not only was the holiday half the price of our usual August holiday, the Lake District was a much nicer place to be with fewer holidaymakers and empty parking spaces. I can see why parents of autistic children might need to take their children out of school in term time (although heads are divided if holidays can be authorised in these circumstances)
I can’t imagine wanting to go away in the school holidays again!
