Term Time Leave

Policy Statement on Term Time Leave

Issued in August 2013 the downloadable document below, outlines our School Term Time Leave Policy.

The outcome of a recent court case in the Isle of Wight has generated some public debate and enquiries about the issuing of penalty notices for unauthorised absence in Sheffield.

Regular attendance at school is vital to help children and young people achieve their full potential and get the best possible start in life.

The Isle of Wight case has not changed the law and has not set a legal precedent. Magistrate's courts will continue to consider the legislation on a case by case basis. We will continue to issue penalty notices on behalf of schools for irregular attendance and unauthorised leave in term time until such time as the legislation or guidance from the government changes.
