Leave of Absence
Holidays in Term Time
Holidays during term time disrupt the educational programme of each individual. Permission for leave may be granted in exceptional circumstances. All requests for leave of absence must be made at least 6 weeks in advance. If you have any queries and would like to discuss this further, please make an appointment to talk to Mrs. Wells.
The Education regulations state that applications for leave must be made in advance by a parent with whom the child lives and can only be authorised by the school in exceptional circumstances. No parent/carer can demand leave of absence as of right. Each application is considered individually by the school.
