A couple are due to appear in court today after taking their three children on holiday to Rhodes during the school term and refusing to pay a subsequent fine.
Stewart and Natasha Sutherland now face a maximum fine of 2,500 and/or imprisonment for a term not exceeding three months.
Here are a selection of a number of responses from users of the ITV News Facebook page:
I take my kids on short 3/4 days holiday during term time. Why? Because we are struggling financially. Term time is the only time we can afford a holiday. If we didn't, my children would never get to go on holiday! Maybe it's the same for this family?
There's a different between poor attendance and taking your children on holiday for a week!
Parents should set an example and support their child's education and the rules about it. Take your kids on a cheaper UK holiday in a caravan or a tent.
