Absence During Term Time
Regular attendance is important to a child’s progress at school and we are obliged to seek and record for the local authority and central government the reason for every absence that a child has from school.
If your child cannot attend school please contact us by telephone on the first morning of an absence.
No parent/carer can demand leave of absence as of right. The education regulations state that applications for leave must be made in advance by a parent with whom the child lives and can only be authorised by the school in exceptional circumstances.
Each application is considered individually by the school.
Please read this document for more information regarding an authorised absence.
