Absence Requests

Exceptional Leave of Absence Request Form

Requests for absence will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances and should be made at least 1 week in advance to the proposed date(s) of the absence.

Please ensure that you do not book holidays or flights for before term ends or for after term has begun. Every day in school matters. We see the number of requests for time out of school rise considerably towards the end of each term. It is impossible for us to distinguish between a bona fide request for leave and those taking an opportunity to leave for a holiday.

All requests for leave during term time are monitored by the Headteacher who may request to meet with you to discuss your request further.

Medical Absence Requests
Any routine/check-ups medical or dental appointments taken during the school day, parents are not require to complete an Exceptional Leave of Absence Request Form, however you are required to bring into the school office evidence of your appointment (e.g. letter, email or text) either before your appointment or immediately upon your return. 

We kindly ask that were possible to make medical and dental appointments outside of school hours and during the school holidays. We appreciate that this is not always possible, but every day in school matters.

If you do have an appointment arranged please notify the school office in advance of this appointment, by emailing
