Leave of Absence in Term-time

Parents are asked not to arrange family holidays or extended visits during term time.  If this is unavoidable then requests should be made to the Principal in advance, before booking the holiday.  Leave of absence request forms are available from Reception.  The Principal is the only person who can give permission for leave of absence during term time. The Education Regulations 2006 make clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Where the Principal decides that authorisation cannot be given but the absence occurs, a Penalty Notice will be issued in line with Kirklees Code of Conduct.
