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.

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.

The shadow education secretary Tristram Hunt has refused to rule out sending his children to private school in the future.
Mr Hunt, who was promoted to the role during Ed Miliband's last reshuffle, insisted he had "absolute faith" in the state sector, but said you "can never say never" about what might happen in the future.
Speaking on The Agenda, the MP said:"I'm first and foremost a parent and a father, and I'm not saying that there are no circumstances ever in the future in which that decision might not have to be taken.
"But my kids are in the state sector, they're going to continue there, but I think it's important for politicians to be honest, and were something to occur in the future which necessitated that situation, I don't want people to say 'well he said he'd never do it'.
"I think you have to be open and frank about those potentialities as a parent."
The Agenda with Tom Bradby will be broadcast on ITV tonight at 10.35pm
