REQUEST FOR AUTHORISATION OF ABSENCE DURING TERM TIME
Parents wishing the school to consider authorising an absence should read the following points carefully:
- There is no automatic right to any holiday during term time.
- The Local Authority and school policy is: family holidays should not be taken in term time.
- Any request must be made in advance of the absence (request forma are available from the School Reception). The request must be received by the school at least four weeks before the proposed absence. This is to allow sufficient time for appropriate consideration.
Should you decide to take your child out of school the absence will be recorded as unauthorised which may be subject to a Penalty Notice Fine of £60 per parent per child which will increase to £120.00 if not paid within 28 days. Thereafter, failure to pay within the stated time limit may lead to Court proceedings.
