Holidays in term time
You have to get permission from the Headteacher if you want to take your child out of school during term time.
You must complete an application to the Headteacher 4 weeks in advance (as a parent the child normally lives with). Please note the majority of applications will be unauthorised. Absence will only be authorised if there are exceptional circumstances.
Please note it is up to the Headteacher how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted. Full details can be obtained from the Office.
You can be fined for taking your child on holiday during term time without the school’s permission.
If our attendance falls below National Levels and needs to be improved we will:-
As part of our Attendance Policy our Attendance Officer, Neill Duke, or another member of school staff, will be making home visits to all children if they are off for more than three consecutive days. If you are not in, then we will leave a “calling card” and it is expected that you call him back.
We can ask you for a voluntary contribution towards the cost of activities like school trips. We can’t stop your child from attending if you don’t pay, but we could cancel the activity if there isn’t enough money to cover the cost of it.
