Leave of Absence

Leave of Absence

It is a legal requirement for your child to attend school on a daily basis and research shows that even low levels of term time absence have an impact on children’s social and academic welfare. Head teachers are now unable to grant any leave of absence for term time holiday, however, leave can sometimes be granted for exceptional circumstances at the discretion of the Head teacher. If leave of absence had been denied and you take your child out of school, you may be subject to a Penalty Notice or face prosecution in court.
