Leave of Absence/Holiday Absence
A link to our attendance policy can be found: here.
Time off school for family holidays cannot be authorised. Schools have the discretion, in exceptional circumstances to authorise leave absence:
- For service personnel and other employees who are prevented from taking holidays outside term-time if the holiday will have minimal disruption to the pupil’s education;
- When a family needs to spend time together to support each other during or after a crisis.
Applications for Leave of Absence where dates can be known ahead, must be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the requested date.
Consideration is given to each request before a decision is reached on behalf of the Governing Body (Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006). Each case will be judged on its merits in line with the criteria outlined above. The decision is final and once the decision to not authorise the leave is taken, it cannot be authorised retrospectively.
