School Holidays During Term Time
The Government has amended regulations for taking holidays in term time and these new regulations came into effect from September 2013.
Head teachers have the discretion to grant leave, but they should only do so in exceptional circumstances. If a head teacher grants a leave request, it will be for them to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. This leave is unlikely, however, to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday. Parents can be fined for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.
An application form for taking your child out of school in term time due to exceptional circumstances can be downloaded from our School Office page.
Please contact the school if you wish to discuss this with the Headteacher.
Durham County Council have produced a fact sheet on holidays in term time, which can be downloaded below.
They have also negotiated a 10% discount with Hay’s Travel for holidays taken during school holidays. More details are available in the leaflet below.
