Parents should ensure that holidays are not taken during term time. However, if this is not possible, parents may obtain leave of absence for up to two weeks (ten school days) in any one school year. This should be applied for in advance, using the form available below or from the reception area, giving as much notice as possible (please also take the time to read the accompanying letter from the County Council regarding absence from school – please see below). Unless there are exceptional circumstances, all leave taken in term time will not be authorised. Please see below the School Attendance Policy.
