Family holidays during term-time

Changes in government policy mean that holidays/time off during term time can no longer be granted, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Parental requests for term-time holidays should be made in writing addressed to the head teacher, they can be also be requested by email to  For more information please see the Local Authority website.

Taking a child out of school without permission would be regarded as unauthorised absence. Parents who do so may be issued with a Penalty Notice by Leicestershire Local Authority, please see their website: Education/Pupil Services Court Team.

I hope that you will support the school in this matter, as we are all concerned to see children fulfil their potential at school. I am sure you will agree that this can best be achieved by avoiding unnecessary absence. Should you wish to discuss the matter further, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
