Holiday requests

We have had several holiday forms this week requesting days off for long weekends/birthdays etc. 
Please note that these do not constitute an ‘annual holiday due to parental leave from work’ so therefore will not be authorised as per county and school attendance policy. 
We ask that you carefully consider taking any holidays during term time currently. The children have lost so much time in school and teachers are trying their very best to ensure that any gaps in their learning are addressed.  We are currently busy working on skills in class with the children that will be needed should the class/school need to close and self-isolate for 14 days. 
A day off from class is days learning lost.
Please also note that if you take a holiday during term time, we will not be providing home learning activities.  This also applies if you travel knowing that you will need to quarantine on your return.
