Absence Request Form

Parents/guardians must ask permission for their child to be absent during term time, and it is at the Head teacher’s discretion to decide whether or not the absence will be authorised. The Head teacher may authorise leave during term time for exceptional circumstances, as detailed in our Attendance Policy. Please note that no applications for holidays will be authorised. If leave is taken without permission, or no application is made, parents risk being issued with a Penalty Notice or being prosecuted on their return. Parents wishing to apply for their child to have leave from school should complete this form and return it to school for authorisation at least 2 weeks before the proposed leave.
