As a result of the Supreme Court ruling on 6th April 2017, it was confirmed that the meaning of ‘regular attendance’ has to be ‘in accordance with attendance rules’ i.e. that pupils attend at all times as required by the school.
Holidays taken during term time will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances, as per Government regulations. We do appreciate parents notifying us of their holiday plans so children are not put in an awkward situation, they can share their experiences with their class and we do not have to to launch a "missing in education" investigation.

We try to arrange a variety of opportunities for parents to be involved with and informed about their child's learning. Whilst it is wonderful for children when parents are able to attend Inspire afternoons and Celebration of Learning events, we do appreciate that working parents may find this difficult at times. In such circumstances, Grannies, Grandads, Aunties or Uncles are welcome of course.
