CE Primary School

Inspiring Faith and Learning for Life



During term time, holidays / time away from school will only be permitted in exceptional circumstances. Any time missed from school is damaging to a pupil’s learning and will impact on their progress and achievement. Where holidays are taken without permission, absences will be recorded as unauthorised. If children miss 10 sessions or more, a penalty notice will be applied for.
