Holiday & Term Dates

Holidays in Term Time

You have to get permission from the Headteacher 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/carer the child normally lives with)
  • there are exceptional circumstances (see exceptional circumstances application form also under the Parent Info tab on our website)

It’s up to the Headteacher how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted.

You can be fined for taking your child on holiday during term time without the school’s permission.
