School holidays will not be approved during term. Any holidays taken during this period will be marked as unauthorised holiday. Parents, guardians and carers, please remember the importance of factoring any potential quarantine restrictions into your holiday, so that if any quarantine measures are required, these do not impact on your child’s return to school in April. The Easter Holidays are only two weeks long and, in most cases, you may have to quarantine for 14 days when you travel to a country and when you return to the United Kingdom. The Department for Education (DfE) guidance states that school attendance is mandatory so all absences will be referred and logged as unauthorised. Any term time holiday requests must be sent to the Headteacher in writing at least one month prior to travelling and before securing any travel arrangements.
