    MSE Poll: Should parents be allowed to take kids out of school for a holiday? 11th Apr 17 at 12:16 PM
    Poll started 11 April 2017

    Should parents be allowed to take kids out of school for a holiday?

    The Supreme Court has finally ruled that parents can’t take their children on term-time holidays without risking being fined.

    The case concerned a father who’d refused to pay a fine after he'd taken his six-year-old daughter out of school for a holiday.

    But what do you think? Should parents be allowed to take their kids on holiday during term time? Which of these is CLOSEST to your view?

    My son has non verbal autism & gets really upset in crowded places when people are too close to him so we have no alternative than to go during term time. Luckily his school are really understanding although it is a sen school so not sure if that makes a difference.
