Attendance – Holidays in term time
If you are requesting holiday in term time because you are only able to take holiday at a set time (eg. determined by your employer) please include a letter from your manager (on company headed paper) confirming this with your Request for Leave form. If this is not received the holiday will not be authorised.
If leave is requested for a family event that is taking place on a week day eg. wedding or funeral, one day would be authorised for this. If time off is for a wedding, please include a copy of the wedding invitation.
Any time off in term time will be at the discretion of the Head teacher.
Any time off requested should be received at least four weeks before the date requested to allow sufficient time for appropriate consideration. Holiday should not be booked if this authorisation has not been obtained as it will be classed as an unauthorised absence and the Education Welfare Service will be notified. This may result in you receiving a fixed penalty fine of £60.00 per child/per parent.
