Frequently Asked Questions
Can I take my child on holiday during term time?
In line with Newham Local Authority guidance and the 2013 Amendment to the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations, leave for pupils during term time is not authorised except in exceptional circumstances. In order to help us ensure that our children achieve the very best that they are able to, the Governing Board has agreed that from September 2017 all requests for holiday absence during term time will continue to be declined and that parents/carers who take their child out of school for this reason may be subject to a Penalty Notice, issued by the Local Authority. This position is similar to many other local schools.
