If children aren't in school they lose out on valuable learning time and have to waste more time catching up. That's why children shouldn't be taken out of school during term time unless absolutely necessary.
Children who attend school regularly are nearly four times more likely to achieve five or more good GCSEs than those who are regularly absent.
That is why we have encouraged schools to tackle poor attendance earlier, and toughened the law on term time holidays.
Parents should not be made to feel like criminals for taking their child out of school for a holiday, a campaigner said today.
Craig Langman, from Nuneaton, has delivered a petition with more than 126,000 signatures to Downing Street, calling for the Government to reverse a ban on taking schoolchildren on holiday during term time.
Under changes introduced last month, headteachers can no longer grant any absence outside of school holidays unless there are exceptional circumstances.
– Mr Langman
This rule takes away that ability to talk to the school and discuss your child's education with them.
If my son was ill a lot and then I say that they're better now and I want to take him on holiday, the teachers have got every right to turn around and say your son is hardly ever here we have to decline it.
If my son has a good attendance rate why shouldn't I be able to discuss it with them, I'm not talking about a guaranteed one or two weeks every year.
