To clarify the school’s position in relation to term time holidays:
The school will continue to apply the Government Guidelines for authorising term time holidays. These will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances – please see existing school Attendance Policy for more information.
Where a holiday has not been authorised the school will follow recent guidance from the Local Authority. Upon a student’s return to school, their 12 month attendance figure to that date will be examined. If the student has 94% attendance or less in the previous 12 months then it is quite likely that a fine will be issued.
