A integrate who took their sons on a term-time Caribbean journey have strike out during Government discipline when they were fined £120 by one of their son’s schools – though zero by a other.

Michelle Parrish, 40, and father Robert, 46, took their children, who attend dual opposite schools reduction than a mile apart, out of lessons for a dream holiday in October.

Each primogenitor who ignores a anathema faces a £60 excellent per child, rising to £120 if it is not paid within 21 days. Failure to compensate a excellent can outcome in prosecution, with a limit excellent – if convicted – of £2,500 or a jail judgment of adult to 3 months.
