Term Time Holidays

Term Time Holidays

Dear parents and carers,

I am writing to let you know that our pupil attendance is lower than some other special schools in England.

One of the reasons for this is that a high number of pupils are having holidays in term time.

To help us reduce the number of term time holidays, we will refer all unauthorised holidays to the Local Authority for a Fixed Penalty Notice.

This means that if you take your child on holiday without the Head of School’s authorisation, the Local Authority will be notified and you will be issued with a fine.

Headteachers are only allowed to authorise holidays during term time in the most exceptional circumstances. You may request authorisation here.

If this worries you or you would like to make an appointment to discuss this please contact Rahima Naseer on 01274 779662.

Our Attendance Policy can be found here, or copies are available from school on request.

Yours sincerely,

Dan Foster

Deputy Headteacher- Behaviour & Safeguarding
