Is it "I" or "we" as far as he's concerned? i.e. he may wonder if
school hols are around that time ...

Hmm, he has got kids but I thought that the school year was mapped out and
tabled in advance so that parents know when holidays are? We haven't got
kids so I don't know about such things.

They are if you have the nouse and/or can be arsed to look.

It's surprising how many people don't know how to google stuff, or even
suppose that it might even exist.

I do suppose that East Sussex country council *will* publish the term
dates for the entire year - but I also know that it will be impossible
to locate via their website - so GoogleTime...

What they don't publish are the endless bloody "inset days" that involve
me or SWMBO taking another day off to cover. Sure we never had those
(2/term) 30 years ago...

FFS I get 30 days annual leave + B/H and I use it *all* just covering
this stuff...

OTOH you can also find school terms for regions in France, Belgium etc -
so it is possible to plan a half-term break there when their grotty oiks
are still in school - that's priceless
