Taking holiday from school during term time

It is important to talk to the Head teacher or class teacher before a decision to take leave is made and complete and submit an application form at least 6 weeks beforehand.

  • The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 as amended by Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2013 no longer permit Head Teachers to authorise leave for holidays;
  • Head Teachers may grant leave of absence in exceptional circumstances;
  • If the exceptional circumstances are agreed, the Head Teacher will determine the length of the absence authorised;
  • Parents may be breaking the law if their children take leave without permission;
  • In some cases schools may take children who are absent without permission off roll.

Taking time off school for religious reasons

Talk to school the head teacher or class teacher when you join a school community about your family’s beliefs and their potential impact on your child’s school attendance.

  • Give as much notice as possible of any likely absence and the reasons for it.
  • If your child has to be involved in religious ceremonies attached to a family wedding, funeral or other occasion, let the school know as early as possible when this will be and what is expected of the child.
  • Discuss with school staff whether there is any school work that your child could do during the time they will be absent so they do not fall too far behind.
