The policy on authorising holidays in term time has changed from September 2022. 

Please avoid booking any holidays in term time as they are unlikely to be authorised.


The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 state that headteachers should not grant approval for any leave of absence during term-time, including holidays, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Please read the following letter which clarifiers the school's position on family holidays in term time.
