Holidays in Term Time

Can I please draw your attention to changes in the legislation announced by Department of Education which took effect from 1st September 2013.

The legislation clearly states that Head teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. These exceptional circumstances are defined as if there is a bereavement in the family or the child has a parent in the armed forces. Any other absence will not be authorised and will result in a fine being issued.
