Mixed views from parents on term time absence

RGS takes formal stance

There's mixed opinion from parents on whether children should be taken out of school during term time, for family holidays.

It follows a formal stance that's been taken by Ramsey Grammar School headteacher Annette Baker.

Mrs Baker has written a letter stating these absences will no longer be authorised, after a high number of pupils taking time off during term-time.

These parents outside Kewaigue School, gave us their reaction.
