Holidays in Term Time

Holidays

Schools within the Walker Learning Partnership will not authorise a family holiday during term time.  The Government has made it clear that schools can no longer do this.  Taking time out of school has a measureable impact upon a child's learning and their level of achievement.  With the competition for gaining employment or accessing further education increasing, children need the best chance they can get of achieving good levels/results and developing good work related habits.

Parents can be prosecuted for taking their child on holiday during school time as it is now automatically an unauthorised absence.
