Pupil Absence Request

If you are thinking of taking term time absence, you will need to complete the Pupil Absence Request form. The completed form needs to be returned to the office for the Headteacher, Ms Loffstadt to review and respond. Please be aware that term-time leave will ONLY be granted due to exceptional circumstances and that every term time absence can affect your child's social, emotional and academic progress.


The Local Authority monitor the attendance of all children within Local maintained schools. Children who have 10 missed sessions on their record (1 day = 2 sessions) will be issued with a fine of up to £120.


For further information, please read our Attendance Policy.
