Holiday During Term Time

It is a legal requirement for children to attend school. The school places great importance on attendance. High attendance leads to high achievement. From 1st September 2013 legislation prohibits any school from authorising leave of absence for holidays except in exceptional circumstances.
If you feel you have exceptional circumstances for a leave of absence during term time, please email the School Office to request an Exceptional Absence Form.  Once you have completed this, each circumstance is considered and you will be notified of the outcome via email.
