Taking Holiday





Please be aware that from September 2019 any unauthorised absence in term time, of 4 days or more, is likely to result in a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) from the Local Authority.


We have tried to be more flexible this year but have been concerned about the high number of children being taken out of school during term time, especially in the cases where those children have already got low attendance. Mr Jordan says that this is unacceptable.


If you want to avoid a FPN & need further information about this, please arrange an appointment to talk to one of the Attendance Team, in the office. We strongly advice your do this before booking a holiday or any other term time leave of absence.


Please see our website, under parents & carers/attendance, for further information.
