Nottingham people have had their say on the controversy regarding the charges of taking children on holiday during term time.

An Isle of Wight father appeared in the Supreme Court today to dispute the £120 fine he received for taking his daughter on holiday without her schools permission.

This has got parents and students in Nottingham to speak out on the issue.

Many have confirmed that parents taking their children out of school should not be penalised, following the senior judges’ decision that John Platt was not acting unlawfully when taking his daughter to Florida.

The Government implemented the strict policy in 2013 to crackdown on the number of school absences.

Parents argue that taking their children on holiday could have educational benefits and will not make a difference to the quality of their learning.
