Attendance Policy

Holidays in Term Time

Parents are discouraged from withdrawing their children from school in term time for family holidays because this may impact on their progress. Head Teachers may only authorise holidays in term time in exceptional circumstances. Parents who believe their circumstances are exceptional are asked to complete an Application for Leave of Absence form which is available from the school office and can be downloaded below. This form should be returned to the school well in advance of the proposed leave and before committing to any expense.  Parents who withdraw their child for unauthorised holidays in term time may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice.
