Holidays during Term Time

Children do not have a statutory right to holidays during term time.  The DfE and Local Authority state that it is at the Headteacher's discretion to authorise leave of absence for the purpose of an annual holiday.  Whilst we do appreciate and sympathise that it is cheaper to go on holiday during term time (please bear in mind that all school staff suffer from the unfair pricing differentials too!) such reasons for taking your child our of school are not considered valid.

Absence during term time will disrupt a child's education and they may never catch up on work missed - a two week holiday in term time would mean that your child misses at least 50 hours of education!
