Please make sure you put these dates into your diary and arrange your family holidays around them. We never recommend that children be taken out of school during term time as this is disruptive to routines and children miss vital parts of the curriculum.
The DfES now ask schools to undertake an absence survey and they regard holidays as “unacceptable reasons” for absence. Ofsted reported that holiday taken during term time will be marked as unauthorised absence, and Education Welfare should be notified.
