Request for leave during term time
For any leave from school an ‘Application for leave’ form MUST be completed – these can be request via reception.
The School’s Policy
The school considers that all absences from school will disrupt a child’s continuity of learning. As a consequence it believes that absences should be kept to a minimum in order to maximise your child’s potential.
What the Law says
Regulations make it clear that parents do not have any right or entitlement to take a child out of school for the purposes of a term-time holiday.
The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013: Regulation 7 of the 2006 Regulations is amended to prohibit the Principal of a school granting leave of absence to a pupil except where an application has been made in advance and the school considers that there are exceptional circumstances.
