All parents will understand that regular attendance at school is necessary for children to make good progress with their education. Therefore we expect family holidays will be arranged in the school holiday period.

Parents do not have a right to take their children out of school for holidays during term time. By law you must ask permission for your child to miss school.

The Department for Education (DfE) has announced important amendments to legislation surrounding holidays in term time.

 

From the 1st September 2013, the new law gives no entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time.  Any application for leave must only be in exceptional circumstances and the Head Teacher must be satisfied that the circumstances are exceptional and warrant the granting of leave. Head Teachers would not be expected to class any term time holiday as exceptional.

 

Parents can receive a Penalty Notice from the Local Authority for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school. From September 2013 these Notices now cost £60 per child per parent if paid within 21 days and £120 if paid between 22 and 28 days. 
Parents wishing to apply for their child to have leave from school should complete this form and return it to school for consideration well in advance of the proposed leave.
