The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 currently allow Head teachers to grant leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time in “special circumstances”. Amendments to the 2006 regulations (effective September 2013) remove references to family holiday and extended leave. The amendments make clear that headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are “exceptional circumstances” and proof of these would be needed.
