Exceptional Leave

The Government state that “Central to raising standards in education and ensuring all pupils can fulfil their potential is an assumption so widely understood that it is insufficiently stated – pupils need to attend school regularly to benefit from their education. Missing out on lessons leaves children vulnerable to falling behind. Children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school”.

Please see our attendance policy for information regarding leave from school in exceptional circumstances.  If you are unsure about any part of this form, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Worswick in the office.

 Most requests for leave will not be authorised and may result in a fixed penalty.
