Attendance and Term Dates

2017 2018

Attendance at school is vitally important in order to make steady progress academically. We work very closely with the Local Education Authority (LA) to work with Parents to improve children’s attendance.

The Government have stated that children should not be taking holidays in term time – all holidays, except for very exceptional circumstances, will be unauthorised.

The letter below gives more information about holiday requests and Penalty notices.
