Attendance and term time holidays

Holidays in term time - new national directive from 1st September 2013

Under the new legislation from the Government holidays in term time WILL NOT BE ALLOWED.  The new regulations mean that the Headteacher MUST NOT grant any holidays in term time unless there is proof of excepitonal circumstances.  If an application is to be made a form should be obtained from the school office or school website and sumbitted with proof as requested.

The cost of holidays may appear to be cheaper but the cost to your child's education is far greater.

From 1st September 2013 Penalty Notices will be issued which will be sent to each parent for EACH CHILD.
