Term Time Absence

It is a legal requirement for parents/carers to obtain the permission of the Headteacher before removing their child from school in order to take any leave in term time. Parents do not have an automatic right to take their children out of school for leave during term time and may be issued with a Penalty Notice (£120 per parent per child) if they do so without prior arrangement with the Headteacher.  The legislation only allows the Headteacher to authorise such leave in exceptional circumstances.

If you wish to request absence for your child during term time, please read the Penalty Notice below and then complete and return your Absence Request to school for consideration.
