Q: Can I take my child out of school for a family holiday?
A: An Application for Leave of Absence must be completed. 

From 1 September 2013, the rules for taking time off in term time were changed. Headteachers are no longer permitted to authorise absence for holidays taken during term time.  They are permitted to grant leave only in exceptional circumstances.  Could we please stress that requests for leave of absence are passed on to our Attendance, Compliance and Enforcement Officer (ACEO) and therefore any decisions are not made by school but by the ACEO.
