School Absences

Including Holidays in term time

Parents often ask about absences and holidays in term time and legislation from September 2013 will make important changes about absences during term time. These changes will mean that schools cannot grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances and they must be approved in advance by the Principal. This will include any request for a leave of absence for a holiday. Please download this leaflet, it explains these changes, the consequences if an unapproved leave of absence is taken during term time and includes an application form if required. Please read this information.
