Due to changes in the law, Headteachers are no longer allowed to authorise absences unless under exceptional circumstances. Unfortunately, a family holiday is not an exceptional circumstance.
Worcester County Council guidance on holidays and extended visits overseas during term time can be found in the attachment below.
Worcester County Council absence from school guidance.
On the occasion that term time leave is unavoidable, the form below should be completed and given to the Headteacher via the school office. Please complete only one per family.
The regulations make it clear that parents do not have any right or entitlement to take a child out of school for the purposes of a term time holiday.
The policy of this school is that term-time holidays will NOT be authorised.
Please note that taking unauthorised term time leave may lead to the Local Authority issuing a fixed penalty notice.
