Holidays in Term Time

In line with government guidelines, holidays in term time are not authorised and taking your child on a term time holiday may result in the issuing of a Penalty Notice. The Penalty Notice fine is £60 per child, per parent, if paid within 21 days. If it is not paid within 21 days, the fine rises to £120 per parent, per child, if paid within 28 days. Non-payment of the fine will lead to court action. The Penalty Notice fine is issued by the local authority and is sent by post following the holiday.

Any absences following the holiday, even those due to illness, may result in your child’s attendance falling below 90% and this could lead to the issuing of a further penalty notice.

The school holiday dates are published well in advance so parents have the information they need before booking holidays.
