Many parents and carers think its okay to go on holiday during term time, but this has a negative affect on your children’s learning and ability to achieve. If your child goes on holiday during term time, they are absent.
Children with over 90% attendance at school are more likely to gain 5 or more Grade 9-4 GSCEs (A-C with old GCSE grades) or equivalent qualifications.
Children with less then 85% attendance at school are unlikely to gain 5 Grade 9-4 GCSEs (A-C with old GCSE grades) or any qualifications.
Authorised holidays are at the discretion of the Headteacher and can only be authorised if the circumstances are exceptional.
If more than 10 sessions (5 days) of unauthorised holiday is taken in a 12 week period, you may receive a penalty notice and be fined.
