2020 - 2021 Term Dates

 

HOLIDAYS IN TERM TIME

 

School is a vital ingredient in a child’s whole development. Any time missed can never be regained and will have a negative impact. It is expected that children should only be absent when they are unwell or unable to attend for a valid reason.

 

It is a legal requirement for parents/carers to obtain the permission of the Headteacher before removing their child from school in order to take a holiday during term time. Parents do not have an automatic right to take their children out of school for holidays during term time and may be issued with a Penalty Notice (£120 per parent per child) if they do so without prior arrangement with the Headteacher. The legislation only allows the Headteacher to authorise such leave in exceptional circumstances.

 

To apply for a child to be granted leave from school, parents should complete a form (available on the school website or from the office) and return it to school for consideration before booking and well in advance(at least 6 weeks) of the proposed leave and before committing to any expense. Upon receipt of a request the Headteacher will make a decision as to whether to authorise the absence, being mindful of government regulations and LA guidance. By definition, exceptional trips should not occur regularly.

 

There is also the potential that the child’s place in the school may be lost if return from any leave is later than the agreed date.

 

Where school have concerns about the leave request, the Headteacher or their representative will arrange to meet with you to discuss your application.
