Absence of Leave for exceptional circumstances form:
•Although there is no right to an absence of leave during term time, consideration will be given by the Head Teacher.
Any additional leave of absence will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.
•Days in excess of the agreed period will be marked as “unauthorised absence” and recorded on your child’s school record accordingly.
•Absence of leave will only be granted where children are going away, i.e physically leaving the area, not merely going on day trips or having an absence of leave at home.
•Requests will be refused if your child already has a poor record of attendance or if national tests are taking place at the time of the absence of leave.
Any absence of leave taken without prior consultation with the school will be marked as “unauthorised absence”.
