Recent changes in legislation now mean that children cannot be granted holidays in term time unless this is due to exceptional circumstances. If leave from school is unavoidable then an Absence Request Form should be filled in. In considering requests for holidays the headteacher will consider current attendance, attainment, year group, time of year and circumstance.
The school year for pupils is 190 school days
Staff training days will take place outside of the term dates given above i.e. when the children are on holiday or after school.
