Leave of absence and term-time holiday requests – Update

5 April 2019

Regular attendance at school promotes pupils’ wellbeing, maximises progress in learning and helps children to reach their potential.

From the 23rd April 2019, if a request for a leave of absence is refused and the absence is recorded as unauthorised, a referral will be made to the Local Authority, requesting a Penalty Notice be issued to the parent/s.


Something to think about…

 Attendance statistics over a 1 year period:

98% absence = 4 days off school

95% absence = 10 days off school

90% absence = 4 weeks off school

85% absence = 5.5 weeks off school

80% absence = 7.5 weeks off school

Our full attendance policy can be found on our school attendance page, within the pupils section of the school website.

We would like to thank you for your continued support.

Mrs R Swinbank

Deputy Headteacher
