Request for absence during term time
We ask for parental support in ensuring that family holidays are not taken during term time. The link between educational attainment and school attendance is well proven and we do want to instil in our young people the message that full attendance at school is extremely important for their future educational success.
Requests for any leave of absence should be made on the form appended below.
If school or external examinations are missed, students will not be able to take them at a later date.
Students are responsible for making sure they complete work missed through absence.
Parents should be aware that periods of unauthorised absence may lead to a fixed penalty notice being issued by the Education Welfare Service.
