Holiday in term time

 

There is no automatic right to any holiday in term time. They are not authorised unless the circumstances are special or exceptional. Parents should apply to the Headteacher for any request for leave in term time by completing a request form (link above). DFEE guidance states schools should not authorise leave retrospectively.

 

The Government has renewed appeals to parents not to take their children out of school during term time. The Governors and Headteacher of the school support this and have decided that students will only be given permission to take leave in term time if there are exceptional circumstances. Each application will be considered and the Headteacher will determine the duration of any leave if it is agreed and authorised. However, if the application is not agreed and the absence occurs the dates will be unauthorised. Parents will be notified of any decision in writing. This notification may be hand delivered directly to the parent or posted to the parents home address.

 

If you request a term-time holiday and it is not authorised, this may lead to a Penalty Fine notice of £60 per parent per child, if paid within 21 days, rising to £120 per parent per child. Non-payment could result in prosecution at a magistrates ' court.

 

Volunteering

 

We welcome Parents and Carers to help us in school, especially to listen to pupils reading. We also sometimes need help with school trips. If you would like to help, please call into the main office to enquire. Frustratingly, there is quite a bit of paperwork to complete, plus a DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) check, but don't worry - we will help with all of it.
