The Education (School Day School Year Wales) Regulations 2006 states that learners are expected to attend school for 190 days a year. Moreover, there is a strong correlation between good attendance and high achievement. As a school we actively encourage parents not to take time off during term time, so that children can fully benefit from the opportunities that school provides.


Parents do not have an automatic right to withdraw pupils from school for a holiday and in law have to apply for permission in advance. If you are intending on going on holidays, please complete a leave of absence form and return it to the school office at least 10 school days before your intended holiday.


All applications for holidays in term time will be considered on an individual basis, the maximum number of days holiday which can be taken in term time is 10 days between the 1st of September to the 31st of August in any academic year.


When considering future family holidays in term time, I would ask you to consider the following.

  1. NOT to take holidays during term time.

  2. The effect the absence from school may have on your child's education on development.

  3. Where possible take family holidays during school holidays.


We would also ask that on your return from holiday, your child returned to school promptly.


We would strongly encourage parents not to take their children out of school during term time and trust you will work with the school to ensure high school attendance for your child.
