There has been a lot of speculation recently about requests for holidays in term time. The Government has not issued new guidelines for Leave of Absence. Head Teachers cannot authorise leave of absence unless there are exceptional circumstances.

If a request has been declined by the school we will pass that information to the Local Authority as required by the Warwickshire Code of Conduct.

The Local Authority then review the case and will make a decision on whether or not to issue a Fixed Penalty (fine). TQEA has no influence on this decision making.

Further information is detailed below or you can contact Ms Parsons at school if you have any questions relating to Attendance.
