From 1 September 2013 Government regulations around holidays in term-time
The changes make it clear that schools may not grant any leave of absence
from school during term-time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
This will mean that applications for leave of absence for the purpose of a
holiday in term-time will be refused unless parents can demonstrate and prove
there are exceptional circumstances relating to the holiday request.
If you take your child out of school without permission this will be recorded as
unauthorised absence (truancy) and noted on the child’s Record of
Achievement and may result in each parent being issued with a fixed penalty
fine for each child taken out of school. If absence in a rolling period of 12 weeks exceeds 7 days, you will be liable to fining. We will always follow protocols and procedures laid down by the Local Authority.
