Leave of Absence Requests
We are no longer able to authorise holiday leave of any kind within term-time. This is statutory and came into force from 1st September 2013. The expectation that parents of particular professions could take leave due to their job has been removed, as has the reference to ’10 days’ of allowable leave. I appreciate this will pose problems for some parents who have already booked holidays. I suggest that parents do contact school prior to making any arrangements in future. Students taking time off for holidays or holiday-type activities will be recorded as ‘Unauthorised’ absence; we will disaggregate those figures to any outside agency that makes a request for attendance data. The Head still has some powers to authorise absence in exceptional circumstances.
For routine requests like interviews, medical treatment, open days and funerals, the school policy remains unchanged.
We expect a high standard of dress - please help your child to keep to our dress code. Purchasing items for school which do not meet our requirements can prove very expensive. Please check at school if you are uncertain. There is an up-to-date uniform list in your child’s planner. To find out more about the school uniform please view the link below.
