Headteacher changes school's vacation policy

A headteacher at one of the Island's secondary schools says parents are risking their children's exam success by taking holidays during term time.

Ramsey Grammar School has announced it's to stop authorising vacations during school time.

Statistics show over four out of five students with attendance above 97% achieved five GCSEs at A* to C including English and Maths last year, but this dropped to a third when attendance was just 91-93%.

Annette Baker says the importance of high attendance can't be ignored.
