Taking holidays during term time is strongly discouraged – we ask that all parents submit a holiday notification in advance to notify of this holiday and request authorisation. Requests are granted solely at the discretion of the Headteacher and will depend upon a range of factors such as time of year, the pupils’ attendance levels over time and impact on their progress in school. The school does not provide work to be completed during holidays taken in term time.
Our target is for all pupils to have attendance of at least 95% each year. However, we fully appreciate that pupils have genuine illnesses and other circumstances can have a negative effect on pupils’ attendance. Please contact the school and ask to speak to the office or the Headteacher if there are any circumstances which are causing problems with school attendance or punctuality.
School term dates are available here and the school notifies parents in advance of planned INSET days each year.
