Term Dates

We want all children to be happy and successful at our school and believe that good, consistent attendance at school is crucial in giving your child the best chance of success. Taking holidays in term-time can seriously disrupt a child’s progress.

From the 1st September 2013, legislation does not give any entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Parents must prove that any application for leave of absence must be in exceptional circumstances and that the circumstances warrant the granting of leave of absence. Parents can be fined by the Local Authority for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.  

Fine payments are £60 per parent, per child to be paid by the 21st day increasing to £120 per parent, per child by the 28th day.  If the fine is unpaid it will be processed to court for prosecution.
