Diary Dates, School Holidays & Inset Days
Throughout each school term the Diary Dates will be displayed on this page. They are updated weekly here and on the Lower Park Beacon Page.
School Holiday Dates for 2016 / 2017 and 2017 / 2018 and Inset Days can be found lower down the page.
Holidays in Term Time
Please note the school holiday dates below. Term time holidays should be avoided – only special circumstances associated with a holiday leave can be authorised.
Please inform school about the special circumstances by letter when requesting leave in term time. (Governing Bodies have been directed by the DCSF NOT to authorise holiday leave in term time because of availability of cheap holidays, desired accommodation or the overlap with the beginning and end of term).
Unauthorised absence has to be recorded. ABSENT CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED to take SATs at another time. It is essential that the children attend school during that week and in the weeks leading up to the start of the SATs
