School Holidays

Parents/carers are expected to support school attendance by avoiding family holidays during term time. Headteachers can only authorise Leave of Absence from school in exceptional circumstances; a cheap holiday is not considered an exceptional circumstance by the Department for Education. Headteachers can ask the local authority to issue a penalty notice (fine) for holidays taken during term time when all the criteria are met.
