As you know, we are working hard at Marland Hill to ensure that we continue to improve our attendance. In addition, it is vital to us that we continue to work in partnership with the community in which we serve.
As a result, please find overleaf the school’s agreed holiday pattern. We have consulted with other schools, the Local Authority and the school’s Governing body to produce a holiday pattern which considers all stakeholders at Marland Hill. As you will see it takes into consideration the major religious festivals as reflected in the make-up of our school community.
As per school policy, no other absences for holiday or extended leave will be authorised and it is expected that children attend school on the planned 190 days.
Thank you for all your feedback and comments which have supported us in making these decisions and as ever your continued support.
Mrs A Pridgeon
