A plan for school absence

So it's regarded as an extremely serious matter for a child to miss school for even one unauthorized day, but it's perfectly fine to ban them from school for four days for eating Mini Cheddars?

Riley Pearson, from Colnbrook, near Slough, was excluded from Colnbrook C of E Primary School after teachers discovered the snack and called in his parents.
After a meeting with headmaster Jeremy Meek, they were sent a letter telling them Riley would be excluded from Wednesday until Monday because he had been 'continuously breaking school rules'.
"Consistency: we've heard of it."

An avenue for parents suggests itself: book your holiday, wait until a couple of days before and then get your child to take a few packets of Monster Munch to school. Profit!
