Holidays during Term Time
Holidays during term time are not authorised. Even though you may inform the school, these holidays cannot be agreed and this period will be recorded as an unauthorised absence on your child's attendance record. Each month a letter is sent to those who fall below the legal requirement of 85% attendance. This list also goes to the Education Authority's Education Welfare Officer. I am aware of the difference in cost by going during term time but school cannot agree to your child missing lessons and this is becoming an increasing problem. Work will not be provided by the teacher.
Holiday lists are always available for next year if you are planning a holiday and I ask you to try to arrange these during agreed holiday times.
