Term time holidays

We are unable to authorise term time holidays. Absence can only be authorised if a child is unwell. If however, the number of unauthorised sessions reaches 15 or more within 2 terms, the local authority may issue you with a Penalty Notice. The Penalty Notice requires parents to pay a fine of £60 within 21 days. If this is not paid within the time limit, the penalty rises to £120 which must be paid within 28 days.


Term time holidays have a negative impact on friendships and learning.

Please avoid taking your child out of school.


Governors’ policy no longer allows term time holidays to be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances.


Section 7 Education Act 1996 places a duty on parents to ensure that their child of compulsory age attends school.
