The 2020 May Bank Holiday is on Friday 8th May 2020.
It has been moved from Monday 4th May 2020 to Friday 8th May 2020 to celebrate 75 years since VE Day.
Holidays In Term Time:
Headteachers have the discretion to grant leave, but they can only do so in exceptional circumstances. If a Headteacher authorises a leave request, it will be for them to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. This leave is unlikely, however, to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday.
Parents can be fined for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.
