And, at a stroke, Dave Harling has increased the price of holidays, in all the Borough travel agencies...
Now all that remains is, for a family to decide, if the saving on taking an holiday in term time, is going to be less than the fine, for keeping the children out of school.

How can the term end on Friday 3rd June? That's half term. The term should be ending sometime in July!

Well done Education boss! But of course these dates do not apply to church schools, Academies, Trust schools or Free Schools. So what is the point? Boss of nothing now.
