School Leave of Absence Form

You are urged to avoid booking a family holiday during term time. Following government guidelines, we can only grant leave for exceptional circumstances. Please note that an unauthorised leave of absence could result in a penalty notice being issued. 

If your child has unauthorised leave of absence you may either be issued with a Penalty Notice of £120 per parent per child (discounted to £60 if paid within 21 days), or, your case could be referred by the Local Authority directly to the Magistrates' Court for the purposes of a criminal prosecution.

Applications to the Headteacher for term time holiday will be considered individually using criteria as detailed in our attendance policy.

If you need to take your child out of school for any reason you will need to fill in a Leave of Absence form stating the reason for absence.  All requests will receive a reply advising whether the absence is authorised or not.
