Amendments have been made to the 2006 regulations in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013.

These amendments, as described below, will come into force on 1 September 2013.



Leave of Absence

Amendments to the 2006 regulations remove any references to family holiday and extended leave as well as any statutory threshold of ten school days. The amendments make it 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.
