Absence from school.

Dear Parent/Carer,


If you need to take your child out of school for any reason please complete the attached form and return to school at least two weeks before the date of the absence or as soon as possible.


The Government gives the Governing Body of the school, via the Headteacher; right to grant authorised absence to enable children to be off school in extenuating circumstances.

Your request may be refused if your child’s attendance is already too low or if you ask for more than eight days.

Taking a holiday during the school term because it would be cheaper, better weather or tagging it onto the beginning or end of a school break is not considered to be “special circumstances” by the Department of Education and as a consequence won't be approved.  The Department of Education believe that only a small number of requests would fall into the category of special circumstances.

Under no circumstances will absences be authorised during Standardised Assessment Tests (SATS) or if a child’s attendance is already below 96%.
