School Holidays, term time rules and fines

Reverse the amendments to the term time family holiday rules under The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 which came into force on 1 September 2013.

These changes will adversely affect many families who cannot afford the cost of a holiday in school holidays. Also not all business can allow their staff to be off all at the same time therefore is the department of education now saying that children are not entitled to holidays with their parents anymore.

All children who have a good attendance record should be allowed the opportunity to enjoy quality time with their parents on an annual holiday of up to 10 days once per year.

Good parents or parents that work full time should not be criminalised for wanting to enjoy an affordable annual family holiday.
