School Term Dates

Parents/Carers should note that Headteachers have the discretion to grant leave, but they will only do this in exceptional circumstances. If a headteacher grants a leave request, it will be for them to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. Leave is unlikely to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.

Parents/Carers can be fined for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.

Further information regarding term time absence is available by following this link: DfE School Attendance
