Swaffham Prior C of E Primary School

Keep Growing

It has been announced that phased school returns could happen from 1st June (after half term) at the earliest. The Prime Minister has said this will be done in stages, beginning with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. Working with DEMAT, and in accordance with Government Guidance, we have produced our risk assessment. If you would like to view this, please visit the Coronavirus page on our website.


Holidays in term time

The school does not authorise any holidays taken during term time. Requests for term-time leave will only be granted in exceptional circumstances on a case-by-case basis. The school strongly urges parents not to book annual family holidays during term-time and these will not normally be authorised. Should this situation be unavoidable, the granting of such leave is at the discretion of the Head Teacher and each case will be treated individually; taking the reason for the holiday, current attendance record and the likely educational impact of any time, which is missed into account. Requests for term-time leave must be made on an application for leave of absence for annual holiday or extended visit overseas form, which is available from the office.  A covering letter is also requested.
