You can only do this if:
It’s up to the head teacher how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted.
Parents do not have a legal right to take their children out of school in order to go on holiday.
Schools can authorise absence for a family holiday if:
If you take your child out of school for a family holiday without the school’s prior authorisation, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and noted in your child’s school records.
