Headteachers may not grant any requests for holiday or extended leave during term time. 

If leave is granted for exceptional circumstances, headteachers must determine the number of school days a child can be away from school, relative to the nature of the individual circumstances.

Parents failing to comply will be guilty of an offence and may be given a fixed penalty notice or prosecuted under section 444 of the Education Act 1996.
