Leave of Absence
There have been changes made by Government regarding leave of absence. This applies to all schools and the new legislation came into force on 1 September 2013.
The amendments to the 2006 regulations now make clear that the Governing Body may not grant any leave of absence during term-time unless there are exceptional circumstances e.g. family bereavement. The Head Teacher will determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if the exceptional circumstances leave is granted. A written application for leave of absence using the schools form LOA Request 2021-2022 must be submitted to the Head Teacher via the School office. This is will processed by the Attendance Team and a meeting arranged to discuss the request.
