Leave of Absence, Holidays in Term Time and Extended Leave of Absence


  • It is important that children attend school regularly if they are to benefit from the learning opportunities provided.
  • Children who are absent from school due to holiday in term time will miss out on important learning.
  • The time teachers have to help children in a class is reduced if they spend time helping a child catch up after a holiday.
  • Educational experiences in school missed as a result of a family holiday cannot be re-captured later.
  • If a child does not attend school regularly they will not be able to keep up with the work.  This has a serious impact on opportunities later in life.
  • The Governing Body policy on Leave of Absence now states that permission for holidays in term time will not be given.
