Holidays absence in Term Time – Governors’ Statement
‘John Ruskin School puts education first. Removal of students from school during term time can cause disproportionate damage to their education. It is, therefore, expected that paretns will not arrange family holidays except during the school holidays. While Governors recognise that there may be considerable educational opportunities to be had from travel, they feel that these are the exception rather than the rule. The Headteacher has been asked to actively discourage parents form causing their children to miss schooling.’
