Holidays in Term Time

Family Holidays in Term Time
Please see the Oxfordshire County Council's guidance to parents (summary available from the school office). Please do not ask for leave of absence for a family holiday in term time. If you do have to ask permission to take your child out of school for a holiday please give at least four weeks notice to allow your request to be considered by the Attendance Panel. The panel are only able to authorise holiday absence in exceptional circumstances.

We consider every request for holiday leave individually. The most important consideration is the effect an absence would have on your child’s education. A pupil’s absence during term time can seriously disrupt learning.
