Facts about holidays in term time
There are 175 non-school days each academic year.
If you do take your child on holiday during term time without the school's permission this will be recorded as unauthorised absence.
10 days holidays during term time means only 95% attendance. If your child is then also ill, that further affects their attendance rate.
The school's policy adheres to the guidelines issued by Doncaster LA. A copy was provided for all parents/carers on May 1st 2013 and is available from the school office on request.
Application for Leave of Absence 2013-14
The Governing Body have agreed that any holidays booked for the academic year 2013-14 prior to May 1st 2013, will be considered for authorisation as long as they follow the policy of 2012-13:
Clearly dated original booking documents (no photocopies) must be provided on application. Failure to provide booking documents will result in applications being refused.
