My son is 6, I have him every other wkend friday to Sunday , and every Tuesday for tea. I've recently taken him on holiday for a week and have done many times. Her objection is am taking him out of school a week early than school hols, an will affect his education but I've been in to school to acomadate for that, such as work 4 him to do at home before we go away and also a project whilst we are away to incorporate what he is doing at school.

Hi
As a starting point you will need to try and use Family mediation (www.familymediationhelpline.co.uk) to negotiate the matter - this is a requirement prior to issuing proceedings.
If that fails you can apply to the court using a form C100 - available here

The fee is £215.
Be sure to get the school to confirm their agreement in writing.
Please ask if you need further details
