Swaffham Prior C of E Primary School

Keep Growing

Stay at home

It's been announced that phased school returns could happen from 1 June (after half term) at the earliest. The Prime Minister has said this will be done in stages, beginning with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.

We understand our families will have questions after the announcement. We will be reviewing the guidance the government will publish later and will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

Holidays in term time

The school does not authorise any holidays taken during term time. Requests for term-time leave will only be granted in exceptional circumstances on a case-by-case basis. The school strongly urges parents not to book annual family holidays during term-time and these will not normally be authorised. Should this situation be unavoidable, the granting of such leave is at the discretion of the Head Teacher and each case will be treated individually; taking the reason for the holiday, current attendance record and the likely educational impact of any time, which is missed into account. Requests for term-time leave must be made on an application for leave of absence for annual holiday or extended visit overseas form, which is available from the office.  A covering letter is also requested.
