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.
