I don't have school aged kids yet, but I thought I'd reply and say many parents at my work have a flexi work arrangement where they get an extra 4 weeks unpaid holidays a year. This is what I'll do when my kids are at school.

Yes they call it 48/52 as you get paid 48 weeks over a year. I work for local government, I find government jobs are generally very good with these sorts of family friendly policies.

One of the part time mums at my work does school hours during the school term then does 2 long days during school holidays, so she's still doing the same number of hours but only has to arrange care 2 days per week and usually on those days the kids go to their friends houses, so the kids love it too.

I take all my leave at half pay so I get 10 weeks off. I am not guarenteed every school holidays off so when I can't get leave my kids go to vacation care. My work has a school holiday care allowance that I am eligible for if my kids are in care during holidays
