Exceptional Education at the Heart of the Community

Holidays in Term Time

Government guidelines state that children should not be allowed any holiday during term time as there is evidence that it impacts on their learning. Any holiday should be taken during non-term time only. Any exceptional requests must be made to the Principal, this should be made by a letter explaining any exceptional circumstances.

If a child goes on a holiday during term time that has not been approved by the Academy, this will count as unauthorised absence.
