Drive to cut term-time holidays

Cheshire East Council is urging parents not to take their children on holiday during school term-time

As part of a wider drive to cut term-time absences, Cheshire East Council’s Education Welfare Service has produced a guide which highlights the importance of keeping children in school throughout the year.

The Taking children on holiday during term time (PDF, 129KB)  from the Education Welfare Service explains the legal obligation parents and carers have to ensure their children regularly attend school, how parents should apply to take their children out of class for a holiday and the penalties that may be imposed for ‘unauthorised’ absences during term-time.
