Please see Parent Section for full list of 2017/18 dates and PD Days(additional days school is closed)


Improving school attendance is one of the government’s high priorities because children need to be in school to benefit from the teaching and learning opportunities.
All schools have attendance targets which are monitored by the local authority and at a national level. Children who miss school for holidays can result in schools not meeting their attendance and academic targets.
There is no entitlements to a holiday leave and head teachers only have the power to authorise leave for exceptional circumstances - medical appointments, operations and treatments(all need proof of appointment); bereavement and funerals or religious obligitons.
