Term Dates

Tidemill takes a tough stance on both attendance and punctuality and firmly believe that every minute or day lost is time that cannot be made up. We are thrilled that our parents support us by making sure their children are in school unless they are really feeling unwell. Tidemill's gates open at 8:45am and the school day begins at 9:00am and finishes at 3:30pm. We do not authorise any holidays during term-time so please make sure you have checked the term dates thoroughly when booking holidays.  If there is an exceptional circumstance that requires you taking your child out of school in term time, please ask at the office for a request form. Please note that these are very rarely authorised.
