Requests for absence.
Department for Education advice published in October 2014 states:
‘Head teachers should only authorise leave of absence in exceptional circumstances. If a head teacher grants a leave request, it will be for the head teacher to determine the length of time that the child can be away from school. Leave is unlikely, however, to be granted for the purposes of a family holiday as a norm.’
If you wish to request leave of absence due to exceptional circumstances, please send your request in writing, addressed to the Head teacher (Mrs P Bekalo) and Chair of Local Academy Representatives.
