Holidays in Term Time

Headteachers can only authorise any leave of absence when an application has been made in advance and it is felt to be for an exceptional circumstance; the annual family holiday would not be deemed an exceptional circumstance.

Application for leave of absence should be made to the school, prior to the holiday, giving the dates of departure and return. A form is available here to download, print and complere, or from the school office.

Holiday in term time form

If parents take a child away from school for a holiday without the prior agreement of the school, the absence will be an unauthorised absence. This will be reported to the Educational Welfare Officer who will contact parents. Please note you may be fined for taking your child out of school in term time.
