When your child can miss school

You can only allow your child to miss school if either:

  • they’re too ill to go in
  • you’ve got advance permission from the school



Holidays in term time

You have to get permission from the head teacher if you want to take your child out of school during term time. Unless there are exceptional circumstances all holidays in term time will be recorded as unauthorised.


You can be fined for taking your child on holiday during term time without the school’s permission.
