Term dates and holidays :: CHRIST CHURCH CofE FIRST SCHOOL & NURSERY

Term dates and holidays

We encourage excellent attendance
At Christ Church we use a six “half-term” timetable. Except for illness and family bereavement, we expect all children to have excellent attendance, i.e. attending school each and every school day. Because school attendance matters we only authorise (i.e. give permission for) time off during term time in exceptional circumstances. For information about attendance and “authorised” and “unauthorised” absences, and possible penalties, please click here.

Term-time holiday penalties
The Department for Education, Somerset County Council and all 17 schools in the Frome Learning Partnership agree that holidays should NOT be taken during term-time. For this reason, Headteachers of Frome schools will NOT authorise term-time holidays, so please do NOT request them or book them. Please also note: parents/carers may be fined up to £1,000 for taking children on holiday during term time without the school’s permission.

Please note: the following dates may be subject to change.
