Holiday During Term Time
Pupils are not allowed to take holiday in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. It is very rare that any holiday would be authorised. Good attendance is key to pupils making good progress and taking time out to go on holiday can significantly hamper progress. Therefore, we request that no child takes holiday during term time.
5 consecutive days or more of absence from school may lead to a fine being issued by Somerset County Council education welfare officers.
