Holiday Planning

Although it may seem reasonable to take a term time holiday, the Department for Education has removed the ability from schools to authorise leave of absence for holidays. Parents no longer have any legal entitlement to take their child out of school during the school term and can be fined £120 per child per parent for doing so.

Two week holiday = 60 lessons missed
Three week holiday = 90 lessons missed
