A parent 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.
Craig Langman says many parents can not afford the higher cost of holidays during school breaks, and says the decision should remain with head teachers. The Department for Education says children miss out on valuable learning time if taken out of school.
Mark Anderson is a Headteacher and told ITV News Central children will not learn as much if they are out of education.
