In order for the children to achieve the best at school it is vital that they attend school regularly and on time.

Absence from school can only be granted in exceptional circumstances and requests should be made in writing accompanied by a leave of absence form which is available here to download or from the school office.  The request must be made at least 10 days before the absence is required.

If a child is taken out of school without permission the absence will be recorded as unauthorised.

If the school have reason to believe that a child has been taken on holiday without making a request to the Head Teacher then this will also be recorded as unauthorised.
