Leave of Absence
In line with national expectations, all absences require consent from the School. In this instance, please send a letter to the Head, ideally with at least a week’s notice. It is in the interest of pupils not to ask for leave from school in term time, except in an emergency or in particularly extenuating circumstances. This arrangement applies not only to holidays, but also to routine medical and dental appointments. We always appreciate cooperation in this respect.
Please note that some secondary schools are now requesting a record of attendance as part of their admissions process for Year 7 pupils.
On a day set for religious observance by a religious body to which the pupil’s parents belong, authorisation for absence will invariably be given automatically. If the exact date of the observance is unknown at the time of writing, please indicate this on your letter and confirm the pupil’s absence on the morning itself.
