Please complete a form for each child you are requesting absence for. You will receive a copy of this form once your request has been considered for authorisation and a copy will be placed in your child’s file.
Please be informed that the school is not permitted to authorise any absence during term time for a holiday.
It is a legal requirement that registered pupils of compulsory school age (5+) attend school regularly and punctually and parents or guardians risk prosecution if they fail in this duty. Amendments to the 2007 Regulations in the Education (Penalty Notices) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 came into force on 1 September 2013.
A fixed penalty notice will be issued when a child has a minimum of 10 school sessions recorded as unauthorised in a 6 week period in term time; (a school day is two sessions – morning and afternoon) or when a child has a series of unauthorised absences leading to irregular attendance.
A copy of the school’s attendance policy is available on the website or upon request if you require further information.
