Term Dates

Holidays in Term Time

Holidays in term are not allowed unless they are deemed as exceptional circumstances.

Any requests for exceptional circumstances are to be made in writing to Mrs Fearon (Head Teacher) and Mr Jackson (Chair of Governors) BEFORE holidays or events are booked.

The letter will then be discussed and a final decision made regarding the evidence put forward. Your child’s current attendance rate and academic progress will also be a consideration.

We understand many reasons why parents wish to take their child out of school but if this is done without permission they will be recorded as having an unauthorised absence.

School policy states there are no exceptional circumstances if the timing is at the start of the academic year or assessment times.

Failure to follow the Local Authority procedures could result in a paid fine.
