Term-Time Holidays

Term-time family holidays cannot be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances. If you are planning to take a holiday in term-time, please speak to Mrs Kay-Wood in advance.

Please look carefully at term-time dates before booking a holiday to try to ensure that it does not fall within term time. Please note, school holiday dates can vary from year to year.

2015-16 (please note there is one more training day to finalise)

2016-17 (please note there will be two additional closure days to finalise)

2017-18 (provisional dates)


If you feel that there are exceptional circumstances, please ask for the "Absence from School for Exceptional Circumstances form" at the school office. You will need to complete the form prior to your holiday.

If circumstances are not exceptional but you still plan to take your child out of school for a term-time holiday, please put this in writing in a letter to Mrs Kay-Wood in advance of your holiday, outlining the dates when your child will be absent.
