What do I do if my child needs time off school?

Schools are no longer able to grant permission for holidays or time off in term time. If you feel that

there is an exceptional reason why your child needs time off school then you need to:

  • Ask the school office for a “Request for Exceptional Leave Form”, or download a copy from the 'Forms' tab in the 'Office' section of the website.
  • Complete this, giving the reason why the request is exceptional, in as much detail as possible.
  • Hand the request form in to the office at least 2 weeks before you need time off.
  • You will receive a written reply starting whether or not the absence will be authorised.
  • If the time is not authorised and you still take your child out of school, then a fixed penalty of  £120 per child, per parent will be issued by the Local Authority.
