Term Time Leave

Holidays in Term Time

Permission must be obtained from the Headteacher if you would like to take your child out of school during term time.

You can only do this if:

  • You make an application to the Headteacher in advance (as a parent the child normally lives with)
  • There are exceptional circumstances

If leave is granted, the Headteacher will decide how many days your child can be away from school .

Parents do not have a legal right to take their children out of school in order to go on holiday.

If you take your child out of school for a family holiday without the school’s prior authorisation, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised and noted in your child’s school records.
