Holidays in Term Time

The law says that parents/carers do not have a legal right to take their child out of school for holidays in term-time.  Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence unless there are exceptional circumstances. 

If parents take their child on holiday in term time without permission this will be counted as unauthorised absence and noted on their record – this is the same as truancy and you may be at risk of a Penalty Notice being applied.  The Penalty Notice is £60 per parent per pupil and if it not is paid within 28 days this will increase to £120. Failure to pay the full amount within 28 days will result in a summons to appear in the Magistrates Court on the grounds that you have failed to ensure your child’s regular attendance at school.

Exceptional circumstances could include:

  1. Service personnel returning from a tour of duty abroad where it is evidenced the individual will not be in receipt of any leave in the near future that coincides with school holidays
  2. Where an absence from school is recommended by a health professional as part of a parent of child’s rehabilitation from a medical or emotional issue.
  3. The death or terminal illness of a person close to the family 
  4. To attend a wedding or funeral of a person close to the family 
  5. Where it is company/organisational policy for an employee to take leave at a specific time in the year and there is no opportunity for a family holiday in school holidays. This must be evidenced by production of the policy document of the organisation
