Unauthorised Absence

Term Time Holidays

Any requests made for a holiday which is not considered by the Headteacher to be exceptional circumstances, will be recorded as unauthorised, and a fixed penalty will be issued by the Local Authority.

If parents or carers do request a leave of absence, we ask that you follow the procedures in the schools attendance policy and complete a written application.

Parents/Carers will receive a written response from the Headteacher letting you know if your application has been approved.

If the holiday goes ahead after the application has been declined, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised.
