You must take any holidays during the designated holiday times.

 

If you are planning a journey that will keep your child away from school this is our policy concerning absenteeism -

• The Government has changed the law and the Headteacher is no longer allowed to agree leave of absence unless there are very exceptional circumstances.

This means that no holidays can be authorised during term time. Any requests for absence during term time must be made in writing. The form is available from the office. Do not book flights until you have received written confirmation from the Headteacher.

 

If your child has unauthorised leave of absence you will either be issued with a Penalty Notice of £120 per parent per child (discounted to £60 if paid within 21 days), or, your case will be referred by the Local Authority directly to the Magistrates’ Court.

 

The Education Welfare Office have issued this statement about children who are repeatedly taken out of school -

‘Where a child has had 2 periods of unauthorised leave for which the parent has been issued with a Penalty Notice (for each occasion), on the third occasion, no Penalty Notice will be issued and that parent will be taken straight to Court under the higher-level aggravated offence. This means that the parent may be subject to a much more severe penalty i.e. a maximum fine of up to £2,500 or 3 months in custody or, a community order which may involve them doing a number of hours of unpaid work.’
