Term Time Holidays

Parents should avoid booking family holidays in term time to minimise the impact on pupils’ learning. Head Teachers are no longer permitted to grant any leave of absence in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This does not include family holidays. Please see the school’s Attendance Policy if you require further information regarding this.
