School Term Dates
By law, the school cannot authorise holidays in term time. If your child takes an authorised period of leave of absence from school then it is likely parents/carers will be required to pay a fine.
For each child that incurs unauthorised absence, each parent can be fined £120. This means that if 2 parents have 3 children then this would be 6 fines altogether.
Families should ensure that relatives are aware of this, ensuring the holiday dates above are adhered to, in order to avoid costly penalties.
