Good attendance at school is essential if children are to make the best progress they can. However, if a child is ill they should not be at school, and if they are suffering with a tummy bug they should not attend school for 48 hours after the last symptom.
Where parents would like to apply for leave of absence for their children due to a family emergency they should fill in the form below. Some parents have work commitments that prevent them taking leave during school holiday periods (eg. MOD or police) and should apply using the leave of absence form, enclosing a letter from their employer. These should be submitted at least one month before the intended absence. No absence will be authorised for Year 6 pupils during Key Stage 2 SATs week.
