School Holidays – Statement from Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust:
Nicholas Postgate Catholic Academy Trust has high expectations for attendance and this includes the fair and consistent application of the ‘Leave of Absence in Term Time policy’. By adjusting the term time dates, the Trust is trying to work with parents and reduce the need to issue penalty notices where leave of absence in term time is taken, particularly in September. We would hope these term dates allow our families the flexibility to take a holiday. Please be advised, where there is a leave of absence taken in term time, this will be taken seriously and the matter forwarded to the relevant local authority, for consideration of the issue of fines.
