A skiing holiday company offering to pay parents' fines for taking their children away during term time has been condemned by the National Association of Headteachers.
Parents who take children out of school have to pay a fine for unauthorised absence of £60 per child, per parent.
But Mountain Base, a company based in Bedford, has said it would cover the costs of the fine, to allow families to book term time holidays. Lauren Hall reports
