Allow King Henry VIII School to have school trips during term time!
For over 17 years the school has been hosting ski trips around the world, and as of the start of the school year, this has been cancelled because the school is not allowed to go on these trips during term times.
These school trips provide a unique, once in a lifetime experience which gives pupils oppurtunities to do things that they have never done before. School trips, aswell as being extremely enjoyable, give pupils skills and experiences which make them more rounded individuals.
Issuses have been brought up on the amount of learning time which is being taken away, but, and agreement can be established to allow pupils who are on track, to be allowed to go on school trips during term time.
You may ask, why the trips don't go ahead during holiday times, but the fact of the matter is that the teachers have lives outside of school and many of them have young families who they want to spend time with during the holidays.
If you feel like these oppurtunities should not be taken away from us, sign this petition.
