Leave in Term Time

In accordance with new guidance released 1st September 2013, leave of absence in term time is not allowed.  Only 'exceptional circumstances' can be authorised; this does not include cheaper holidays.  Days off school affect your child's attainment and their attendance figure and you risk being issued with a penalty notice and legal action if your child takes unauthorised absence.   Thank you for helping your child to reach their learning potential by sending them to school every day.
