Requests for authorised absence.

The Government expects all children on roll to attend every day, when the school is in session, as long as they are fit and healthy enough to do so. Due to changes contained in the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2013, the Head teacher no longer has the discretion to allow up to 10 days in a school year for family holidays or extend leave for parents to visit their country of origin.

The Head teacher has the discretion to grant leave only for very exceptional circumstances. The Head teacher will determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if any leave is granted. Any absence not agreed as exceptional will be marked as unauthorised.

Please email if you wish to request an authorised absence from school.
