School Holidays During Term Time
 
The Government has amended regulations for taking holidays in term time and these new regulations came into affect from September 2013.
 
Head teachers have the discretion to grant leave, but they should only do so in exceptional circumstances.
 
This leave is unlikely, however, to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday. Parents can be fined for taking thier child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.
 
Additional guidance is given on the Leave of Absence form below.
