School Holiday Dates


Term Dates and Inset Days

Holidays during term time
Please note that, holidays taken in term time are not permitted. Ensuring your child is in school each day of term, is parents’/carers’ legal responsibility.  The law states that for your child to be considered to attend school regularly they must be at school every day they are required to be there by the head teacher. This was confirmed in a Supreme Court ruling in 2017.


Therefore, you have to get permission from the head teacher if you want to take your child out of school during term time.


You can only do this if you make an application to the head teacher in advance (as a parent the child normally lives with). The head teacher will then decide whether to agree the leave of absence and whether this is marked as authorised or unauthorised in the attendance register.


Please note that head teachers are only permitted to agree a leave of absence in term time for exceptional circumstances.


It is at the discretion of the head teacher to determine how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted.
