The Board of Governors are strongly against parents removing children from school during term time for family holidays etc. The the Principal and staff have been advised they they should not provide extra homework for children whose parents go against this advice. We recognize that work commitments and holiday selection periods often do not align with the academic year so will attempt to publish details of holiday dates as early as possible to allow parents to plan out the coming year and avoid removing children during term time.
