Leave of Absence

As a parent, you have a legal responsibility to ensure your child’s attendance at school. We are only able to authorise absence from school in exceptional circumstances. In making a request for a leave of absence you will need to explain why the circumstances are exceptional. You must also make your application as far in advance as possible, ideally four weeks before the planned absence.
