Holidays in term time

Thank you to the majority of families who organise their holidays in the school breaks so that there is no impact on their child’s attendance at school.

Following the supreme court ruling on the case of the parent who disputed the Fixed Penalty Notice for taking his child out of school during term time for a family holiday, West Sussex have stated that they have resumed the use of Fixed Penalty Notices in such circumstances.

If you are considering taking your child out of school for a family holiday, please make an appointment to discuss this with me at the earliest possible opportunity, preferably before the booking is made.
