Leave of Absence

When requesting leave of absence for exceptional circumstances you are asked to complete the following form.

Please note parents have a legal duty to ensure their child’s regular attendance at school.  Headteachers may authorise leave of absence if it is proved under the criteria ‘exceptional circumstance’.  Exceptional circumstances are at the discretion of Headteachers who must satisfy themselves that the circumstances warrant granting of leave.

The application should be made well in advance and parents are strongly advised to apply for leave of absence before they confirm their holiday arrangements.  Holidays during term time are not classed as exceptional circumstances.
