Absence Requests in Term Time

An absence request form must be completed for every planned absence from school.

All absence requests forms will be considered on a case-by-case basis and only authorised in exceptional circumstances. The pupil’s attendance rate will be taken as of the day the request form is handed into the school office.  

If the decision to unauthorise the leave of absence is upheld and the parent still decides to proceed with the absence, the Local Authority may issue parents with a £60 penalty notice per child, per parent (£60 if it is paid within 21 days or £120 within 28 days).

Please visit the School Office if you require a paper copy of our Absence Request Form.
