Leave of absence requests

The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 states that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless:


·  An application has been made in advance to the Headteacher by a parent with whom the pupil normally lives with; and

·   The proprietor (Headteacher) or person authorised by the Headteacher considers that leave of absence should be granted due to the exceptional circumstances relating to that application.


Should you wish to remove your child from school for a holiday, you MUST complete a holiday form BEFORE you book the flights.

AND complete a COVID19 HOLIDAY DECLARATION FORM and email it to the school BEFORE your child will be allowed back into school.
