You can find the holiday patterns for this year and future academic years here:
Under new Government Legislation holidays taken in school time will only be authorised under exceptional circumstances. If a holiday is taken without permission a fixed penalty fine could be issued by the School Attendance Improvement Service.
Term time leave of absence in exceptional circumstances may be granted by the Safeguarding and Pastoral Manager. Exceptional Circumstances Holiday request forms are available from the office or you can download a form here.
Parents/carers must apply to the Safeguarding and Pastoral Manager to request leave of absence. Each application will be judged on its own merit.
Exceptional circumstances should be considered as one-off situations. If an event can reasonably be scheduled outside of term time then it is unlikely that the absence will be authorized.
The following will not be considered exceptional circumstances:
- Relatives coming to visit
- Cheaper holidays in England and abroad
- Family day trips
- Visiting family/friends who have different half terms or holidays.
