Holidays in term time


Policy

We do not authorise holidays during term-time other than in exceptional circumstances.  We do still ask though that parents apply for holidays in advance using a Holiday Request Form. Applications for authorisation due to exceptional circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.  Where holidays are taken, staff will not usually provide pupils with additional work, although possible activities could include hearing your child read and finding out about the place you are visiting. 

Fixed Penalty Notices

We consider absence over the last 3 terms before issuing a fixed penalty notice. Where holidays are taken and attendance is below 92.5% then a fixed penalty notice may be issued.
