A landmark ruling in the Supreme Court is due to take place on the 31st January that will rule on the legality of taking children out of school during term time.

Derbyshire County Council was the first in the Midlands to abolish fines for all but the worst offenders.

Furthermore, in 2015, Craig Langman from Nuneaton started a campaign asking for a change in the law for headteachers to be given discretion on the issuing of fines. His petition received 230,00 signatures.

Do you think it is right for parents be fined for taking their children on holiday during the school term?
