Due to new legislation that has been brought in by the Department for Education, no holidays will be authorised during school term from the 1 September 2013.
The school year is an important time for children in all years both for academic and social reasons.
If your child does not have regular attendance in school you could be prosecuted under Section 4441(1) of the Education Act 1996.
Taking your child on a term time holiday that is not authorised may result in a Penalty Notice Fine which if not paid will lead to prosecution for the offence committed. School has the right to challenge parents/carers to request evidence if they feel no acceptable reason for absence has been provided.
