Calendar

School events and term dates. While we do try to plan our events in advance they are subject to changes, so please check back regularly especially when close to an event date.

Leave of Absence in Term Time

If your child has time off before or after any school holiday, his/her absence will be classed as Extended Leave of Absence and marked with the code of G (leave without permission) and after 10 sessions (5 days) the Local Authority may issue a penalty fine. You should also be aware that if his/her absence exceeds 20 days his/her name may be removed from our register.

Any leave of absence in term time must be applied for at least 10 days in advance. Parents/carers should write a letter and hand this in to our Attendance Team. I would also advise you that any unauthorised leave taken during term time may incur a penalty fine from the Local Authority. With effect from 1st September 2013 the fine will be £120 per parent per child, reduced to £60 per parent per child if paid within 21 days.
