Holidays in term time

Latest

Apply for your child’s primary school place: If your child was born between 1 September 2015 and 31 August 2016, then they are due to start primary school in September 2020. Don’t miss the deadline on 15 January 2020.

If you want to take your child out of school during term time you should ask the head teacher for permission. Headteachers can only agree absence in exceptional circumstances.

Holidays are not normally considered exceptional circumstances.

If the headteacher does not agree the absence they will give you a written warning. If your child is absent from school for 10 sessions (5 school days) the school may request that we issue a Penalty Notice.
