Dates & Latest News
We do not advocate term time holidays and we expect all holidays, visits to see family etc. to take place during the school closure periods. All school holiday dates are published to parents one year in advance.
With this in mind, the Government and Local Education Authority have now put in place new procedures regarding absence during term time and Headteachers may only grant absence in exceptional circumstances. Clearly, there are many situations which may constitute exceptional circumstances, but as a generality ‘exceptional’ will be interpreted as being of unique and significant emotional, educational or spiritual value to the child, which outweighs the loss of teaching time. Whilst it will be important to look at the whole situation in making decisions about any individual request, the normality will be that requests will be refused. The aim is to ensure that every child gets their full entitlement to education – every missed lesson is a missed learning opportunity.
Holiday request forms are available from the Office on both sites. They should be completed and returned no less than two weeks before the first date of absence.
