Holidays in Term Time

We do not authorise holidays in term time under any circumstances. Can parents / carers please ensure that they do not book holidays or flights before term ends or after term has begun. Every day in school matters.
The school sees the number of requests for time out of school to visit seriously sick elderly relatives rise massively in the last two weeks of July and the first week of September. It is impossible for us to distinguish between a bona fide request and those seeking cheaper flights. A false request is morally wrong, a bad example to set children and is unfair on those who do have a family crisis.
