- It is expected that all pupils will be in the playground at 8:50am

If you know your child will be late, please inform us immediately.
Holidays during term time
Cambridgeshire’s schools and the County Council discourage parents from arranging family holidays during term-time. In exceptional circumstances, you will need to make a written request at least two weeks before the date when you plan to go away, stating the reason why you feel you are unable to arrange your holiday during the school holidays.
Amendments to the 2006 regulations come into force in September 2013 and they remove references to family holiday and extended leave as well as the statutory threshold of ten school days. The amendments make clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Headteachers should determine the number of days a child can be away from school if the leave is granted.
Leave taken when authorisation has not been obtained from the school will be recorded as unauthorised.
