E-petition: Reverse the changes to school term time family holiday rules

ChildIn the UK all families with children are affectively discriminated. Couples without children are in a much better position because they can choose the cheaper and better holidays. Whereas parents with children are constrained by the inflexible holiday schedule and are forced to pay much higher fees.

Reverse the amendments to the term time family holiday rules under The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 which are due to come into force on 1 September 2013.

All children who have a good attendance record should be allowed the opportunity to enjoy quality time with their parents on an annual holiday of up to 10 days once per year.

Good parents should not be criminalised for wanting to enjoy an affordable annual family holiday.
