As a parent you will understand that regular attendance at school is necessary for your child/children to make good progress with their education.  As a school we do not authorise requests for family holidays in term time.

Leave of absence is only authorised in exceptional circumstances.  

If you wish to apply for leave of absence, please complete the Google Form below at least 10 working days before the period of absence.

Once you have completed the Google Form, please email any relevant evidence to

You will receive confirmation of whether your request is authorised or unauthorised within 3 school days.

If your request is unauthorised, but you still take the leave of absence, the Local Authority will issue a penalty notice for £120 (or £60 if paid within 28 days) to each parent for each child taken out of school.
