A council has put a temporary hold on fining parents

Postby Gary Houghton-Rogers » Fri Jul 29, 2016 11:40 am

A council has put a temporary hold on fining parents who take their children out of school for up to 10 days. The The Stoke Sentinel reports that Staffordshire County Council issued new guidance to schools and families on term-time holidays following a recent court ruling in the Isle of Wight case, where a father successfully challenged a fine for unauthorised absence on the basis of his child's previously good attendance record. The temporary hold will be in place until the Supreme Court, which the Isle of Wight case has been referred to, rules on it.
