Leave of absence in term time

The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 currently allow headteachers to grant up to 10 days leave of absence in special circumstances for the purpose of a family holiday during term time. Amendments to the 2006 regulations, to be enacted in September 2013, remove all references to family holidays and extended leave as well as to the threshold of 10 school days. The amendments make it clear that headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
