Term time holidays

When children miss school for term time holidays not only do they miss out on important learning
but they often take time to settle back into their learning routines.
The government is strengthening the rules around Education Penalty Notices. These are fixed
penalty fines which can be issued by the Local Authority where 10 or more sessions (5 days) of
unauthorised absence take place.
They are most commonly issued to parents when a child misses school for an term time holiday
taken without the permission of the school.
The new stronger rules will apply to all offences taking place after August 2024.

  • For the first fine issued after the start of the 24-25 school year, the fine will increase to £80

per parent per child if paid within 21 days, or £160 if paid within 28 days.

  • If a second fine is then issued to the same parent for the same child within three years of the

first fine it will be for £160.

  • Subsequent offences - no further fines can then be issued if two have already been issued to

the same parent for the same child within the previous three years (starting with the date of
the first fine); instead the parent will be prosecuted by the Local Authority in the
Magistrates’ Court.
It’s therefore more important than ever that parents arrange to take family holidays in the school
holidays and not in term time.

Should you wish to apply for authorisation for time off during term time, please complete the Application for Absence in Term Time form below and submit it to the school office no less than 6 weeks before departure. Late applications can only be accepted in exceptional circumstances.
