Holidays in term time


The following Information has been received by school from CEC in light of the recent court ruling

‘the Council is reviewing its practice with regards to the issuing of Penalty Notices for term time holiday absence as a matter of priority  and is seeking urgent guidance from the DfE.’ 

Parents' rights to remove children from school for term time holidays ended

For many years, parents in England have had the right to remove children from school in order to take them on a family holiday or for exceptional circumstances.

This right was embedded in the The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006.

However, the Coalition government is changing these regulations and is issuing the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013.

These amendments, as described below, will come into force on 1 September 2023.

Term-time holiday

The old regulations allow headteachers to grant leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time in “special circumstances” of up to ten school days leave per year. Headteachers can also grant extended leave for more than ten school days in exceptional circumstances.
