One parent, who did not wish to be named, said the head's leave was "absolutely disgusting".
"I've been fined twice for taking my children out of school and I put in a request to take them out next year and it's been refused," she said.
"I think she should either give us an explanation why she is taking time off.... or at least grant people holiday to do it themselves."No explanation will be forthcoming, proles. In fact, how very dare you question your betters?
Chair of governors, Kevin Hunter, said Mrs Winder was "devoted, well-liked, extremely hardworking and effective".
"She made what we have judged to be a request for a week off during term time for personal reasons which we have judged appropriate," he said.But then what else could be expected from the folks that scream merry hell about ‘vital education’ when you take your children out of school, yet see nothing wrong with going on strike at the drop of a hat?
