The ban on parents removing their children from school during term time should be scrapped because it is "too simplistic", according to Britain's local councils.
The Local Government Association (LGA) hit out at Michael Gove's flagship policy which only allowed children time off from school if they had permission from the head teachers who deemed the family had "exceptional circumstances".
The LGA said the ban was not flexible enough and was not tailored to fit around the complexities of modern family life. Parents face a £60 fine per child if they take their child out of school without permission which rises to £120 if not paid within 21 days. Those who fail to pay can face prosecution, with a maximum fine, if convicted, of £2,500 or a jail sentence of up to three months.
