Leave of Absence Request

As parents, you have a legal responsibility to ensure your child’s attendance at school.  During the academic year, pupils are at school for 190 days and at home for 175 days.

Please be aware that The Education (Pupil Registration)(England)(Amendment) Regulations 2013, state that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. The Headteacher is also required to determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if leave is granted.

Please download and complete this form if you want the Headteacher to consider your request for your child’s leave of absence for exceptional circumstances. We may ask for proof to validate your request. Please return completed forms electronically to the Headteacher’s PA Ms. Lesley Fish
