Term Time holidays/leave
As you know, in September 2013 the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 came into force. These regulations make it clear that Headteachers should not grant approval for any leave of absence during term-time, including holidays, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Parents are not entitled to take their children on holiday in term-time. Such holidays can only be taken with the written approval of the headteacher. Each case will be considered on its own merits and the decision of the headteacher is final. Parents requesting term time leave should complete the link below and submit this 2 weeks in advance of the holiday. Taking children on holiday during term time will mean they are missing out on important learning and opportunities, school events and experiences.
It is not necessary for nursery aged children to complete this link however it is appreciated if you inform the school office that they will not be in nursery during specific dates.
