HOLIDAYS IN TERM TIME
It is school policy not to authorise any absence for holiday taken in term time. Please can I remind parents/carers that if they take their child out of school without authorisation for 5 or more days, they will be liable to receive penalty notices. Currently, the amount payable under a penalty notice is £60.00 payable within 21 days, rising to £120.00 if paid within 21- 28 days. If the penalty notice is not paid within 28 days, the Local Authority will consider a prosecution in the Magistrates Court. Please note that Penalty Notices are issued per parent/carer per child, so a family with 2 parents/carers and 2 children will receive 4 penalty notices.” A full explanation is attached to this newsletter for your reference.
