Absences in Term Time

General Guidance

Our absence during term policy and related documents can be downloaded from this this page. 

Only in special circumstances will holiday leave be authorised during term time.  Such special circumstances will include:

• When a family needs to spend time together to support each other during or after a crisis;


• Service personnel, or other employees, who are prevented from taking holidays outside term time if the holiday will have minimal disruption to the pupil’s education.

Should you wish to request a leave of absence for your child please use the downloadable form on this page.
