Sir: I would have thought that as little or no teaching or learning takes place during the time of national curriculum tests (a whole week in primary schools), it would be the ideal time for parents to take their children on holiday during term time.

Or does David Hart ("Heads seek term-time holiday ban", 30 December) know of children whose education has suffered from their failure to take these tests, which the Chief Inspector of Schools found vague and of dubious merit?
