Absence & Attendance

Parents are strongly discouraged from taking their children on holiday during term time. From September 2013 all schools have to change the way they view absences for holidays in term time. Any requests for absences during term time will now be referred to as 'Leave of Absence'.

'HOLIDAYS IN SCHOOL TIME MAY BE LESS EXPENSIVE BUT YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION IS PRICELESS'

All requests for leave of absence in term time are strongly discouraged.

Application forms for leave of absence can be requested from the school office or website and must be returned to school no later than 28 working days before the absence is due to commence.
All requests for leave of absence will be declined unless parents can evidence exceptional circumstance which is at the discretion of the Headteacher.

NO APPLICATIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED UNLESS THE APPLICATION FOR LEAVE OF ABSENCE FORM IS FULLY COMPLETED.
