Our School Term Dates and Holidays

Thank you to all our families who use the school holidays for all their travelling and family holidays.  It is a very important step in ensuring that your children have good attendance at school, have the best chance to learn and ultimately gain the best life chances. 

Our school achieved 96% attendance in the academic year 2020-2021 (National average 96%).
We strive for all children to achieve as close to 100% attendance as is possible.

Because of the high proportion of holiday absence in other schools, legislation was passed to limit the powers of Headteachers in this respect and it came into effect from the beginning of September 2013. Headteachers can no longer grant term-time leave for the purpose of a holiday.  We do not grant holidays in term time.
