Holidays in Term Time

Children's progress in school and success as learners are affected if they are absent so we work closely with families to ensure attendance is as high as possible. The Principal and governors set a target of 96% attendance for the school and monitor this closely for every child.

We ask that parents book appointments for the dentist and doctor wherever possible at times outside the school day. If you have no alternative, please bring your appointment card to school.

It is very unlikely that a request for an absence due to holiday in term time would be authorised. Unauthorised absences of 10  or more sessions will be reported to the Education Welfare Officer if your child's attendance is below 90%. They may issue a fine (£60 per child, per parent).  Absence from school without request is counted as unauthorised absence.

See Policies page for information about requesting an absence in special circumstances.
