Holidays in Term Time

The DFE have informed all schools that from September 1st 2013 no holidays are allowed to be authorised in term time. I understand that this will make it difficult for many families, however this is a government decision and therefore out of our hands. The governing body will be allowed to consider leave for pupils from school in very exceptional circumstances. This will not, however, include economic reasons or leave from work of parents. The list of term dates for the academic year should assist in long term holiday plans. Should you wish to apply for leave of absence for your child, please put your request in writing addressed to the headteacher.
