Fed up parents have launched a campaign for a judicial review against Michael Gove's tougher penalties for taking children out of school during term-time for a family holiday.
Campaign group, Parents Want A Say (PWAS), are seeking a review against the school of a 10-year-old boy with Aspergers, who has been prevented on taking a trip with his parents to Spain next month.
According to his mother, Daniel Bales gets "very anxious" around noise and heat, so the family need to take a trip before the summer high season.
Michael Gove's ended a policy allowing schools to grant up to 10 days leave per year for family holidays in special circumstances.
Parents who take their children away without the school's permission face a maximum fine of £60 per pupil.
