Requests for Leave of Absence during term time:

Parents/carers are advised that requests for holiday during term time will not be authorised, except in the most exceptional and extenuating circumstances. All requests must be submitted in advance to the school office on the correct forms. Supporting evidence of exams etc should be stapled to application. If the form is not completed or the application is marked as unauthorised this will be entered onto the school records. It is important that your children attend school everyday and on time as this impacts on their learning.
