Holidays and Fines
Legislation introduced in September 2013 states that any application for holiday must be in exceptional circumstances only and must be approved by the Headteacher. The current law does not allow parents to take their children out of school during term time and parents can be fined.
An additional bank holiday will be held on Friday 3 June 2022, and as the majority of West Midlands schools are already on Whitsun half term holiday on this day, it is agreed that the additional one-day holiday will therefore be taken elsewhere.
It was agreed across the region to suggest to all schools that the additional day should be taken on Friday 22nd July 2022, meaning that the Summer Term ends on Thursday 21 July 2022.
