Essex County Council and Term Time Holidays

The trail that was set begin on 10 November, of James and Dana Haymore for taking their child out of school during term time for six days has been dropped. Their case was taken on by Liberty which said “common sense must prevail”, and now it has, resulting in a massive legal bill for the council involved. The prosecution came after the couple took their 11-year-old son out of Primary School, between December 16 and 20 and on January 7 for a memorial service for Mrs Haymore’s grandfather in the US. Whilst an Education Select Committee is taking evidence of extremism and fraud in Free Schools and Academies; term time school holidays seems to be the Conservatives top priority.
