Holiday Request Form
The Department for Education has announced important changes to the legislation surrounding holidays in term time. From 1st September 2013 Head teachers may not authorise any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. There is no entitlement for parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Head teachers must be satisfied that the circumstances are exceptional and warrant the granting of leave.
The Headteacher will determine the number of days that a child can be away from school, if the leave is granted in accordance with arrangements made by the schools governing body.
The Local Authority can fine parents for failing to ensure their child attends school.
