Holidays During Term Time
The school holiday dates are published a year in advance and we strongly advise parents/carers to book their family holidays during the school holidays. If a family holiday in term time is unavoidable, parents/carers should apply to the School using the ‘Application for Leave of Absence’ form; however the Head teacher is unable to authorise any absences due to holiday taken during term time. Some exceptional circumstances may be considered when appropriate.
No parents/carers can demand leave of absence for their child/children as a right.
Where a child is taken out of school for a holiday during term time for 5 days or more without the authority of the head teacher, each parent may be liable to receive a penalty notice for each child.
