Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Since you are the child's mother you automatically have Parental Responsibility for the child.
In fact no one is entitled to take the child out of school for a holiday - and you will certainly need the permission of his father to do so.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
