    Requests for absence during term time

    As from the 1st September 2013, all schools are unable to authorise any requests for absence relating to holidays in term time.  This has been brought about by an amendment to the Education (Pupil Registration)(England) Regulations 2006 which has removed reference to holidays and the ten day period.

    These changes reinforce the government’s view that every minute of every school day is vital and that pupils should only be granted authorised absence by the school, in exceptional circumstances e.g. illness, exclusions, or due to other unavoidable causes.  This view has recently been reinforced by Ofsted who in a recently published report on a Devon school reported, "Pupils clearly enjoy being at school. However, overall attendance is no better than average and this is in part due to some pupils being taken out of school for holidays during term time by their parents, in spite of the fact that the school has a clear and published policy that makes it clear that such absence is unauthorised. This absence has an impact on pupils’ achievement. As a result, the overall judgement for behaviour and safety is good rather than outstanding”.

    We would remind parents that unauthorised absences may well result in the instigation of parental responsibility measures which could be a penalty notice, or a fine of up to £2,500 and/or a term of imprisonment of up to 3 months.  We hope you will support your child’s school by ensuring that your son/daughter obtains the maximum benefit from their time at school by attending punctually for the 190 days each year that the law requires, unless prevented from doing so by an unavoidable circumstances.

  • Safeguarding

    What to do if you suspect a child or young person is at risk?

    In order to protect people from abuse and harm it is important that everyone knows what to do if they suspect someone is being abused.

    You may suspect that someone is being harmed or abused because:

    • You have general concerns about someone's wellbeing
    • You see or hear about something which could cause abuse
    • Someone tells you something has happened or is happening to them which could be abuse.

    Within school the Designated Safeguarding Lead is Caroline Warren (Head of Student Safeguarding) and our Deputy DSL is Tania Mayes (Family Support Worker), please feel free to contact the above staff on 01884 256655 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
