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.
As part of our Lenten fundraising we will be holding a Book Sale on Friday 17 March 2023 from 8.30am – 9.30am. We would be grateful for any pre-used books, children or adults, that you no longer require. These can be brought in to school anytime before Friday please Thank you
