Maybe you cannot go in the easter / summer holidays and are restricted to 1/2 terms
Maybe , but most people who have children manage , book annual leave early , organise work commitments accordingly.
Im quite intrigued which professions only allow time off in February , May and October though. Do share what sector you work in

I would say most businesses that have Easter and summer holidays as there busy period might not let staff have time off, living in a seaside town there is a lot people that are in this situation. February half term might be the only time they can get away in school holidays as that will be the time when the business is shut.

I had no plans to keep my youngest,8, off school but hes now off until January. He goes to a special school and there are only 9 children total in his class, 4 staff members and a mid day assistant. Thats his whole class bubble. There have now been 4 positive tests within his bubble so he's off school isolating. Gutted for him as he will miss Polar Express day. I've had to tell him the whole school has had to close and Polar Express has been cancelled as he wouldn't understand it just being his class off. Lots of fun at home with Mummy now though and I'm going to do our own Polar Express day at home for him. 😊❤

My opinion is that the kids have missed enough school and shouldnt be missing anymore if it can be avoided.

My kids school have been told there is no fun christmas stuff as they have to work. Im so relieved for my year 11 as they have missed so much and exams will come so quickly but I feel maybe they could do a couple of fun things in the less important lessons for the years 7 and 8s in the last week.

OP. It's a minefield isn't it. Whatever you opt to do, I hope you and your family are able to spend Christmas in a way that you feel comfortable doing. And have a blast 🌲

Two other points

Locally, and in a few other areas symptoms are not required in order to be tested. It is open to all. We haven't opted to do it as yet, but absolutely of one of us had symptoms we would all go. I do wonder whether we should just go anyway. The prevalence rates here are very high and the numbers of people testing positive but are asymptomatic are also through the roof.

DDs year returned from selfisolation on Monday. Last night she said of her normal.class of 29, 8 were in. And this was the highest number of attendees in her year. It's year 11 so an important one too.

All lessons are blended learning so online and face to face. So I can understand the temptation to not go in. We are coming under pressure from her to allow her to do the same.

The point about if you don't go in then you don't go anywhere is an interesting argument / consideration.

I would encourage anyone with access to symptomless testing to take it.

A family member who is also a teacher tested positive last week in Liverpool. This person is young and healthy and following all guidance. They are also a teacher in a high school so the potential to infect others was massive. Without taking that time out to get tested could have spoilt a few Christmas
