Leave of Absence

There is no automatic entitlement in law to time off in school time.

All requests for a leave of absence must be made in advance by completion of the Leave of Absence form available in the school office. Absence requests are only authorised in exceptional circumstances.

Please note that term - time holidays are NOT authorised and are disruptive to your child's learning. Your child will miss valuable teaching time.

 In 2018-19 our school had the lowest absence and therefore the highest attendance in the Local Authority. We also had the lowest persistent absentee absence in the Local Authority. We are very proud of our attendance record and staff work very hard with parents to maintain this. Our children love coming to school!
