Leave of Absence Request

We strongly urge parents to avoid booking holidays during term time.  We are only able to grant leave of absence for up to 10 days in any school year but this is at the Headteacher’s discretion and when evidence of exceptional circumstances has been provided. 

Before granting holidays the school will also consider any additional absence during the school year and also the timing of the holiday (test periods etc). 

Our Education Welfare Officer recommends that we do not authorise holidays if a child’s attendance is under 90%. 

All planned absences should be formally requested using a “Leave of Absence Form”.
