19th October - Father wins court fight over fine for taking his daughter out of school during term time

Then the Supreme Court are involved and overrules the decision

 

The supreme court has upheld the ban on parents taking their children out of school for family holidays during term time.

 

In a unanimous decision, the justices upheld a fine imposed on a father for taking his daughter out of school for an unauthorised seven-day break in April 2015

Teachers and parents across the UK have watched the dispute between Jon Platt and his local education authority, Isle of Wight council, carefully. Platt successfully challenged the council’s original £60 fine last year.

Yet, Primary schools across the country are begging parents to contribute basic supplies (including toilet paper) because the schools are not managing their budgets !

 

Other schools are asking parents to contribute to other basic costs such as school trips, gym equipment, etc !

 

Fining Parents is not really the way to go about getting their budgets subsidised is it ?

What's more annoying is that my daughter's school was open yesterday (Easter Monday) meaning we could not go away as a family for the Easter break that the rest of us had off work!
