Key Information  »  Term time absence

A list of school term and holiday dates are available on our website - Diary dates.

It is best for your child if family holidays are arranged within our school holidays, to avoid missing important parts of the curriculum which may not be repeated. Excellent attendance helps pupils to achieve highly and enjoy school.

By law, you may no longer request permission from the Headteacher for a child to be absent from school to go on holiday. All absences for a family holiday will be unauthorised except in exceptional circumstances.

Please be aware that staff training days when the school is closed to children have to be taken during a term date. We try to notify families of these at least six months in advance.

Holiday requests cannot be authorised when the children are taking part in national assessments. They are;

Year 1 and Year 2 phonics screening check: 2nd or 3rd week after summer half-term holiday
Y2 SATs: Throughout May
Y6 SATs: Mid May

Please contact the school for the excact dates which change every year.
