As from 1st September 2013 government legislation stipulates that:
Applications for leave of absence (holiday requests) must be made in advance by a parent with whom the pupil normally resides; and that such leave will only be granted under exceptional circumstances.
There is no longer any entitlement for parents to take their child on holiday during term time. The Headteacher is now charged with making decisions about whether any such request can be authorised by the school.
Please see below two documents relating to holiday requests. The first is a letter from the Headteacher clarifying the School's stance on this matter. The second document is a form to be submitted to the school requesting a holiday form.
