Parents have a legal responsibility to ensure their child’s attendance at school. Holidays in term time can disrupt the educational progress and interrupt continuity of teaching and learning. If you wish to ask the Headteacher to authorise leave for exceptional circumstances please complete the form below and send it back to school as soon as possible (half a term before the planned absence if possible). Requests can only be authorised where there is evidence of exceptional circumstances and taking leave in term time is unavoidable in the circumstances.
