St Mary’s school strives to provide the best possible education for its pupils at all times. Therefore, it is crucial that children attend school as often as possible. We do not usually authorise leave in term-time, in accordance with Goverment guidelines, as we believe this adversely affects children’s learning potential. Please read this letter about term-time leave from the Headteacher and Educational Welfare Officer: stmbs holiday letter Feb 2016
