School Holidays During Term Time

The Government has amended regulations for taking holidays in term time and these new regulations come into effect from September 2013.

Head teachers have the discretion to grant leave, but they should only do so in exceptional circumstances. If a head teacher grants a leave request, it will be for them to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. This leave is unlikely, however, to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.

Parents can be fined for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school. Please see below leaflet provided by the Local Authority explaining Fixed Penalty Notices

Please contact the school if you wish to discuss this with the Executive Headteacher.

Easter Egg Competition

Well done to everyone who entered our ‘Decorate an Egg’ competition. We were blown away by the standard of entries and all the hard work that had gone into them. Thank you to all of our families who helped. It was very difficult to decide on the winners. Mrs Cruise and Sian chose 3 winners […]
