Term-time holiday penalties
The Department for Education, Somerset County Council and all 18 schools in the Frome Learning Partnership agree that holidays should NOT be taken during term-time. For this reason, Headteachers of Frome schools will NOT authorise (i.e. give permission for) term-time holidays, so please do NOT request them or book them. Please also note: parents/carers may be fined up to £1,000 for taking children on holiday during term time without the school’s permission.
Applying for time off during term time
Parents/carers who have taken into account these facts, and still want their child to take time off during term time should complete a request for term-time leave form and submit it to the school office (for the attention of the Headteacher) at least four weeks before the date(s) being asked for.
