School attendance is central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind.
Can a parent take their child on holiday during term time?
Headteachers should only authorise leave of absence in exceptional circumstances. If a head teacher grants a leave request, it will be for the headteacher to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. Leave is unlikely to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.
There are 5 days within each school year where the school is closed to children; these days are used for teacher training and are called inset days.
