Sunderland schools term dates

UPDATE July 2014:

Information from the Department of Education about not allowing holidays in term time.


Amendments to school attendance regulations coming into force 1st September 2013:


Amendments to the 2006 regulations remove references to family holiday and extended leave as well as the statutory threshold of ten school days. The amendments make clear that headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Headteachers should determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if the leave is granted.

We are informing parents of this change, which I have earlier said was expected, so that families can plan ahead to take holidays only in school holiday weeks.
