Holidays

Taking your child out of school during term time can be detrimental to your child's educational progress and there is no legal right for parents/carers to take their children on holidays during term time.

Charles Warren Academy has high expectations for attendance and will speak with parents immediately should we have concerns.  Parents will be contacted via phone and letter if attendance drops below 95%.

If the leave of absence is not authorised and the holiday is taken anyway, the case will be referred to the Education Welfare service who may issue a penalty notice.

We would urge you, if it is at all possible, to take your holiday during academy holiday periods.
