Absence
 
From September 2013, the law as far as what headteachers can do with regard to authorising holiday will change.  The changes to the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 are explained on their website:
 
Term-time holiday
The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 currently allow headteachers to grant leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time in “special circumstances” of up to ten school days leave per year. Headteachers can also grant extended leave for more than ten school days in exceptional circumstances.
 
Amendments to the 2006 regulations remove references to family holiday and extended leave as well as the statutory threshold of ten school days. The amendments make clear that headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Headteachers should determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if the leave is granted.
 
The result of this is that it will be almost impossible for headteachers to authorise absence.  Research shows that there is a close link between high attendance and good results and between good results and earning potential later on in life. 
 
Whilst headteachers have been able to exercise some discretion up to now, from September 2013, it will no longer be possible within the regulations for absence to be authorised for anything other than “exceptional circumstances.”
