Holidays During School Time
New government regulations state that ‘head teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances’. As a consequence, holidays taken during school time will be recorded as unauthorised. These regulations have come into place because of the negative impact non attendance has on the progress and learning of children.
It is strongly advised that holidays are only taken during school holidays times, thereby ensuring the minimum disturbance to your child’s education. For further details relating to this matter click here.
If you do find it necessary to request a leave of absence during term time, it will continue to be necessary to complete a leave of absence form. These are available from the school office and the school website. The request will be considered in line with the government’s guidelines.
