A reminder of our policy on absence requests is that no leave of absence in term time can be authorised unless it meets exceptional circumstances. If parents take children on holiday during term time, we act on the DfE guidance – If it is felt circumstances are not exceptional, there may be a fixed penalty fine issued by the local authority. Please take this under consideration when you are booking holidays.
