The law says that parents/carers do not have a legal right to take their child out of school for holidays in term time.
However, Holmwood School can allow parents/carers to take their child out of school providing there are special circumstances for the request and an application is made in advance by the parent/carer with whom the child normally resides. Only in exceptional circumstances will school day absences be granted in any school year.
If you take a holiday without the school’s permission or if your child fails to return by the agreed date, this will be recorded as unauthorised absence and noted on your child’s records.
