Holidays in Term Time

From September 2013 the Department for Education have stated that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

This means that we are no longer authorised to give permission for family holidays during term time, unless we are satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances.  Please ask at the school office for more information.
