Revise the rules for term time holidays

Comment 28th August 2010

Currently a school which has attendance below a set percentage will automatically fail OFSTED. This is fine except that it disadvantages very small schools where one irresponsible parent can have a much greater effect than they would in a larger school. One student away for 10 days in a school of 300 has a much smaller perecntage effect than in a school of 55

OFSTED should thus revise their  regulation onto a sliding scale related to the roll of the school

Why does this matter?

The current system of measurement is fundamentally unfair and discriminates against small schools
