Cradle Hill Community Primary School

Term Time Holidays

Since 1st September 2013, government legislation has stated that Head Teachers are no longer able to authorise any requests for children to be taken out of school unless they believe the circumstances are exceptional.

Previously, Head Teachers were able to authorise up to ten days of leave from school for special circumstances, but the updated legislation is specific:

requests for leave can only be granted in exceptional circumstances and family holidays do not fall into this category.
