If parents wish to take their son/daughter out of school for an extended period of time for reasons other than illness or medical issues, then a Leave of Absence form must be completed and returned to the school.
It is important for parents to be aware that the Principal will only grant leave of absence for exceptional circumstances.
Please ensure that the form is completed in advance of the request for a leave of absence. Please be aware that if leave is not granted then any absences will be recorded as unauthorised, which may result in the Local Authority issuing warning letters and prosecutions.
We wish to support all parents and work together to make sure that all students are attending school as much as possible. Where absences occur it is a well known fact that academic progress is affected.
