* change of may day bank holiday

The Government announced on Friday 7 June that the early May bank holiday in 2020 will move from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day which takes place on 8 May. This is to enable people to pay tribute to those who served in one of the most significant events in our country’s history.

The occasion will remember the contribution of British, Commonwealth and Allied armed forces personnel; those who contributed to the war effort and safeguarded the Home Front. As well as marking the Allies’ victory in 1945, the bank holiday will serve as an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have served and continue to serve in the UK Armed Forces and their families.

Taking Holidays during Term Time

The Government discourages the taking of holidays in term time and schools must adhere to their guidelines as follows:

“As of September 2013, the law has restricted a Headteacher’s ability to authorise holidays during term time. Headteachers are now only empowered to approve a leave of absence when it is requested in advance by the parent or carer with whom the child resides and when circumstances of the requested leave are ‘exceptional’. Following the decision of the Supreme Court on the matter of ‘regular attendance’ in the case of Isle of Wight v Platt, If a parent or carer chooses to take their child out of school during term time when the circumstances are not ‘exceptional’, from September 2017, the Local Authority will be informed as this will constitute an unauthorised absence. A Fixed Penalty Notice will then be issued in accordance with Section 444 of the Education Act 1996.
