Information on time off during term time

Parents should not normally take their children on holiday in term time. There is no legal right to do so.

It is important that children attend school regularly if they are to benefit from the learning opportunities provided. Therefore, parent/carers are asked to take family holidays during school holidays.

As from September 2013, Schools and Head teachers cannot authorise any leave of absence during term time unless they deem it to be an exceptional circumstance.

The Government advises schools and governing bodies that unless the circumstances are deemed exceptional, the absence must be marked as ‘unauthorised’ in the school register. This record of attendance forms part of your child’s school report.

‘If the absence is not authorised and leave is taken, the case may be referred to the Attendance Service who may issue a Penalty Notice for £120 (or £60 if paid within 21 days) to each parent for each child taken out of school.’

To apply for leave ‘Under Exceptional Circumstances’ download the form below, complete and return to the school office.

Our full Attendance Policy is available under School Information tab: Policies
