Term Dates/Absence Request Forms

The Department for Education (DfE) announced important amendments to legislation surrounding holidays in term time, and we can only authorise absence in "exceptional circumstances". The new law gives no entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Any application for leave must only be in exceptional circumstances, the fact that the holiday is cheaper is not classed as an exceptional circumstance.

We should inform you that if your child has more 10% unauthorised absences  they will be picked up by the Local Authority who may issue you with a Penalty Notice which will have a financial implication.
