  • We would be grateful if parents would arrange holidays at the same time as the school holidays as absence at other times (even at the end of term) is disruptive both for the children and for the staff.  There are now stricter government guidelines on absence and holidays taken in school time. 
  • No authorisation will be given for holidays requested during examination times.
  • ALL absences have to be recorded and reported.
  • NO homework will be given if parents take holidays during term time.


Provisional return date for Autumn 2019 is Wednesday 4th September
