It is the policy of Cardiff Council and Gabalfa Primary School NOT to authorise term time holidays or heritage leave, unless under exceptional circumstances.
Cardiff Council has issued the following advice to schools:
Parents and Carers are able to request leave from the Headteacher but do not have an automatic right to take a pupil out of school for a holiday. Should a parent or carer decide to take their child/children out of school they may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice for absences of 10 sessions (5 days) or more.
Parents/Carers should write to the Headteacher, giving reasons for the holiday, and details of the proposed holiday, including departure and return dates, AT LEAST ONE WEEK prior to departure.
For further information please see the schools's Attendance Policy.
