Term Time Absence

We are receiving a large number of requests from parents asking if they can take their children out of school during term time. We have a very strict policy about this, and we refuse applications for holidays during term time. As a school we are no longer prepared to accept that our children will miss out on their education during term time.

Children are at school for 190 days a year, which leaves 175 days for holidays and other trips.

We have provided detailed guidance on our policy about this on our Attendance page. 

If you take your child out of school without permission, you risk a minimum £60.00 fine or if you are gone for a long period, losing your child’s place in our school.
