Holiday Requests


Holiday requests in Term Time

As you will be aware the Government has issued strict guidelines for schools to ensure pupils are not taken out of school during term time unless it is an EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCE.

It has recently hit the news that the government has suggested that weddings, funerals, and other such ceremonies can be regarded as 'exceptional circumstances'. Chapmanslade Primary School has always viewed these as 'exceptional'. We also view as exceptional:  sporting fixtures at county / national / international level; visits to secondary schools for transition; visits to other schools.
