Absence requests

Full attendance at school is expected.


Legislation does not give any entitlement to parents to take their children on holiday during term time.

Any application for leave must be in exceptional circumstances and the Head Teacher must be satisfied that the circumstances warrant the granting of leave.

We recognise that the Covid-19 pandemic has had an enormous impact on family gatherings.  The Head Teacher will use his discretion when considering any holiday requests during 2021-2022.


Further information can be found in the school's Attendance and Punctuality Policy (on the Policies page - link below)


Any requests for leave should be made to the Head Teacher in writing.
