Being a working parent who works with 30 odd other parents, how on earth can we fit our leave into a 6 week period, they will end up not employing mums....... this country is becoming so dictatorial. Corrina B.

Two Different Scenarios

In summary:

I never understood how children in one family could be so different. My children are very different. There are some similar threads that run through them, but mainly they are different. That’s just in my home! In a school, imagine how different all those children are in character, in background, in influences, in mentality, in health. Schools do an amazing job of herding all these differences through each term. But Schools and the Education System should never forget that each child, each family unit has different circumstances and different restrictions. With good communication and strong communities I’d like to think that Head staff are competent at making little tweaks during term times to calibrate and fine tune the individual learning tracks.
