Term Times

School Term Dates 2018/19

Holiday lists for the school year are readily available from the school office and from the Cumbria County Council Website. We believe that every day in school is vital for your child to progress and make progress in their learning. Therefore it is a school policy to work closely with all families in order to enable all children to take holidays only in specified holiday times. In exceptional circumstances Parents may need to take holidays in term time. If this is the case an application for leave of absence must be made in advance to the Headteacher, at least two weeks before any proposed holiday date. The number of days leave granted is at the discretion of the Headteacher Each individual case will then be carefully considered. If a leave of absence for up to 10 school days has previously been authorised in any one school year additional time will NOT be authorised. These absences will be recorded as unauthorised. The Standard Assessment Tests for children in Years 2 and 6 take place during the month of May and all children in those age groups are required to be present at school during the tests. Children in Years 3 to 5 take optional SAT’s tests during Year 6 SAT’s week; please avoid taking your children out of school at any time during this period.
