Facts for Parents
Parents are legally obliged to ensure that their child attends school regularly and may be fined or prosecuted if they take their child on holiday during term time, or fail to ensure regular attendance. The academy is not legally allowed to authorise holidays. Absence is only permitted and authorised for genuine illness (medical evidence may be required) or days of religious observance verified by the religious organisation.
