Request to authorise absence from school due to exceptional circumstances
Schools are only able to authorise absence form school in exceptional circumstances. In making a request for an authorised absence from school you will need to explain why the circumstances are exceptional. Please note: There is no general right to authorise absence for a family holiday and if you take your child out of school without permission the absence will be unauthorised and we may refer the matter for consideration of legal action.
You are advised not to make any arrangements until your request has been considered.
