Holidays during term time


From 1st September 2013 new laws were introduced by the Government that schools have to follow with regard to authorising leave of absence from schools.  Absence can now only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.  Please click on the link below to read the letter sent to parents in July 2013 outlining the new regulations and how they affect you. 

Please note that you may be fined in certain circumstances (penalty notice) by the authorities.

Should you decide to apply for leave of absence, the form is also available below.

However PLEASE ENSURE YOU READ THE LETTER DATED JULY 2013 FIRST to ensure you  understand whether your application is likely to be approved or not.  If you are in any doubt please speak to someone in the school office or the headteacher.
