CHRIST CHURCH CofE FIRST SCHOOL & NURSERY :: Term dates and holidays

Term dates and holidays

At Christ Church we use a six “half-term” timetable. Except for illness and family bereavement, we expect all children to have excellent attendance, i.e. attending school each and every school day. Because school attendance matters we only authorise time off during term time in exceptional circumstances. For information about attendance and “authorised” and “unauthorised” absences, and possible penalties, please click here.
