From 1 September 2013 Head Teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example a wedding of a close relative or a music or school entrance exam. Absence can no longer be authorised for anything other than exceptional circumstances. Requests for absence due to exceptional circumstance should be made using the form below detailing the dates and reasons for absence.

Please try to give at least two weeks notice. Governors may be consulted in Leave of Absence cases. We appreciate that parents and carers try to keep non-urgent medical/dental appointments to after school hours and would be grateful for your continued cooperation.
