Please be reminded that, in accordance with local and national guidelines, holidays cannot be authorised during term time. School take a very proactive approach to attendance and punctuality and will issue letters to remind you if your child’s attendance falls below nationally acceptable guidelines. Removing your child for family holidays during term time could result in fines being issued by the local authority.
Usually, pupils in Years 2 and 6 take statutory assessment tests during May. However, at the time of writing, it is uncertain as to whether such tests will remain the same next year. Therefore we have to assume that they will be and that the same rules would apply. We respectfully ask that it is essential that children are in school during these periods. Pupils in Year 1 undertake Phonics screening during June and this is also essential that pupils do not miss school at all, where possible.
If you have any further questions relating to holidays, leave of absence or sickness, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
