Together we make a difference

Applying for leave in term time

Taking Leave during the school term

Amendments to the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations 2006 and September 2013 make clear that Headteachers may not authorise holidays (or other leave of absence) in term time unless there are very exceptional circumstances. The school upholds these regulations and supports the use of financial penalties and court action where necessary.
