Attendance at school has been hugely impacted over the last two years by school closures and by periods of self isolation. Schools are being urged to do everything they can to ensure school attendance returns to its pre pandemic levels. Just to remind everyone that holidays in term time are very rarely authorised, only when the circumstances are exceptional. This was explained in a letter sent to all families in the Autumn Term 2021 and in a News item last term. We are getting lots of requests for holidays; if they are for four days or less, there is no further action. If they are for 5 days or more and they are unauthorised, they will be referred for a Fixed Penalty fine.
