You can visit the Durham County Council website to view or download the school holidays dates for this academic year and next year for all community schools, special schools and voluntary controlled schools. Please note that schools and academies may have set different dates and you should check with the school or academy to confirm their arrangements or view the PDF for schools not following the standard term and holiday dates.
School Holidays During Term Time
The Government has amended regulations for taking holidays in term time and for school attendance. DFE guidance on attendance can be found online – DFE GUIDANCE
Head teachers can only grant leave of absence in exceptional circumstances. If a head teacher grants a leave request, it will be for them to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. This leave is unlikely, however, to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.
Parents can be fined for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school. Our Leave of Absence in Term Time Application Form can be found under Downloadable Forms in the School Office section of our website.
Please contact the school if you wish to discuss this with the Headteacher.
