    @owen1978 yes, it it perfectly fine for your employer to tell you when you have to take holiday, but it is one of those areas that can get a little grey. Some places will set out from the day of your employment what the expectations are and most of the details. Sometimes when you hear about unions being up in arms about holidays it is not so much the amount, but the forced change in when and the speed of the change. The best thing you can do is to get outlined, at the beginning of each year, when you can take holidays and work around it.

    I have previously had trouble having to tell people to take holidays as you can get people who are just happy to plod on with the work without realising there is only limited amount of time ti fit holidays in. Better to plan the holidays for the year (where possible) and make sure you don't take on more work than can be done around those times. It also helps to force others to plan.

    if you have a 2-3 man team then the best time to sneek holidays off during term-time is once the y11 y12 y13 go on study leave, sometimes the y10 are on work experience at the same time.,
