Regular attendance in school is crucial to raising standards of education and ensuring every child can meet their full potential. Missing out on lessons can leave children vulnerable to falling behind and achieving less than that which they are capable. If you allow your child to miss school during term time for an avoidable reason without obtaining prior approval from school, you may be referred to the Education Investigation Service and could be subject to a Penalty Notice.
If you need to book planned time off for your child during term time, please contact the School Office for a Leave of Absence form. The form must be completed and submitted at least 15 days before the absence. You will receive a letter from the Headteacher to confirm whether or not the absence will be authorised. Please note that a term time Leave of Absence for a family holiday or event will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.
