Guidance regarding requesting leave of absence
Due to amendments (April 2013) that have been made to the Department for Education’s Pupil Registration Regulations to address attendance issues, it has been made clear to headteachers that they should not grant leave of absence during term time unless there are “exceptional circumstances”.
Requests will be considered on an individual basis taking into account your child’s special education needs, attendance and progress. In response to a leave of absence request you will receive a response letter stating whether this leave of absence has been authorised or not.
