Holidays during Term Time

New Government regulations came into force in September 2013. Schools are unable to authorise any holidays taken during term time. If there are ‘exceptional circumstances’ the Governors and Head will agree the number of days leave but a meeting must take place and it must be ‘exceptional circumstances’. Term time holidays will be unauthorised and may include penalty notices of £60 per child (£60 if paid within 21 days and £120 if paid within 28 days).

Breakfast Club


Breakfast club is available from 7.45am to 8.45 am every day at a cost of £4.00 per child per day and must be bookable in advance.  The link for booking is sent out weekly via ParentPay.  Toast with butter/jam etc is available from 7.45am to 8.15am.
