Extended holiday leave during term time cannot be authorised except in exceptional cases e.g. for compassionate, welfare or medical reasons. This is in line with UK Government statutory requirement. Please log onto https://www.gov.uk/school-attendance-absence/overview for more information. It is very important that children do not miss any sessions unless they are unwell in which case the school must be informed immediately. Term-time absence is a serious issue for the school and our Governors. We ask all parents to please follow appropriate procedures and to ensure that good attendance levels are maintained. If you do need to take child on leave in term time you will need to follow the advice on Exceptional Circumstances. This includes attaching a letter from your Chain-of-Command stating that they agree to your leave as being an EXCEPTIONAL case. Details are available at the reception and on our website.
