Attendance and lateness

Holidays during term time


All absence from school affects your child’s education. Taking a child on holiday during term time could mean:

  • your child is missing out on important school work which will be difficult to catch up
  • creating more work for your child and the teachers
  • affecting other pupils’ learning


Any request for absence during term time must

  • be made in writing to the Headteacher
  • be an exceptional circumstance

We would ask that all requests are made at least one month in advance.
