2017 / 2018
Regular school attendance is an important part of giving your child the best possible start in life.
Attendance is key
Please will you take care to ensure that you are familiar with our term dates. From 1st September 2013, the new law gives no entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday in term time. It makes it clear that Head teachers may not grant any holidays or other absences during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

The Local Authority, is expecting that, as Head teachers and Principals required by law to comply with the amendments to the regulations, all schools in Oldham will introduce firm policies and checks to ensure that there is a significant reduction in the number of absences being authorised in term time.
As a Local Authority School we are expected to uphold the Council policies. If you would like further guidance on any matters concerning this please click on the links provided to the relevant documents on the council website.
