Term Dates 2017-2018

Please be aware when planning family holiday that Wye School have slightly different term dates from those published by Kent County Council, and dates will be assigned for staff training. Students will not attend school on those days.

The dates when students will attend school are below:

September 2017 to July 2018

Please note that due to changes in United Learning’s approach to INSET, these dates have been amended slightly from those published earlier (this notice dated 26 May 2017 & further updated 15 November 2017)

For most of the time we follow Kent dates, but we do operate a slightly earlier start in the autumn and finish a little earlier in the summer. In addition, the October half term is longer than Kent’s, with students off school from 14th October.

Term Time Absence

The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 did allow headteachers to grant leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time in “special circumstances”.

Amendments to the 2006 regulations, which have come into force from September 2013, make clear that head-teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Should you wish to request a term time absence, which you believe to be an exceptional cirumstance, please email Ms Myriam Tavernier using the official school form found at the 'Application for Term Time Leave' tab. 

Any holiday which is taken and not been approved will be coded as an unauthorised absence for your child.  We are obliged to pass these to the local authority who have the power to impose a fine (penalty notice) Penalty Notices carry a fine of £60 per parent per child if paid within 21 days increasing to £120 per parent per child if paid between 22-28 days.
