Holidays in Term Time
On educational grounds, neither the Department of Education and Children nor the school either supports or encourages additional time being taken off school for holiday purposes. Securing leave of absence for this purpose should not be regarded as a formality and should be applied for in advance, not retrospectively.
Leave of absence will only be granted for more than 10 school days in any academic year in exceptional circumstances, and any time taken off school for which leave of absence has not been granted will be recorded as an unauthorised absence and may be investigated by the Department of Education and Children’s attendance officer. If you wish to apply for a leave of absence for your child you should do so by writing to the Headteacher outlining why it is essential for the trip to take place during term time, giving as much notice as possible
