Term dates can be found on our Friday Flyer (weekly newsletter) and below.
Please visit the Durham County Council website to view or download the school holidays dates for this academic year and next year for all community schools, special schools and voluntary controlled schools. Please note that voluntary aided (church) schools, foundation schools, academies and school in different local authorities may have set different dates and you should check with the individual school or academy to confirm their arrangements.
School Holidays During Term Time
The Government released ‘Working together to improve school attendance’ in May 2022, this document outlines ‘Granting leaves of absence.’
- Only exceptional circumstances warrant a leave of absence. Schools should consider each application individually taking into account the specific facts and circumstances and relevant background context behind the request.
- If a leave of absence is granted, it is for the headteacher to determine the length of the time the pupil can be away from school.
- As head teachers should only grant leaves of absence in exceptional circumstances it is unlikely a leave of absence will be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.
Please contact the school if you wish to discuss this with the Headteacher.
