Headteachers are no longer permitted to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. It is for the Headteacher to determine if circumstances are exceptional. If leave is granted, the Headteacher will also determine the number of days a child can be away from school. Requests for exceptional leave must be put in writing and cannot be given retrospectively.


Term Dates 2019-2020


If parents apply for exceptional leave of absence and the request is refused, a Fixed Penalty Notice (fine) may be issued if the child is subsequently taken out of school.

As a result of these amendments, the school will need to make changes to its procedures. Should you wish to request a leave of absence for your child, you will need to make an appointment with the Headteacher to discuss  this matter in the first instance.

Please be aware that leave can no longer be authorised for the purposes of a family holiday. Should you have any questions on this matter, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
