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

Term dates and holidays

We encourage excellent attendance
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 (i.e. give permission for) time off during term time in exceptional circumstances. For information about attendance and “authorised” and “unauthorised” absences, and possible penalties, please click here.

Term-time holiday penalty notices and prosecutions
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 taking children on holiday during term time without the school’s permission may face prosecution which could lead to fines up to £2,500 and/or 3 months imprisonment. (See section 12 of the Somerset County Council Model Attendance Protocol for Schools, September 2019.)
