Taking Holidays During School Time

Your child has a right to a full education at Werneth Primary School and research strongly indicates that absence from school has a detrimental effect on a pupil’s academic attainment.

  • There are 175 days (weekends and school holidays) available to use for appointments and holidays
  • There are 190 school days in one year which your child needs to attend
  • The school will not authorise any holidays during term time and unauthorised absences of 5 days or more will be referred to the Local Authority for a Penalty Notice.

For further information about attendance, please read our attendance policy which is available on our policies page.
