The % of unauthorised absence in 2018/19 was 0.5%
Leave of Absence
The Governing Body support the DfE drive to improve attendance and discourage Holidays in Term Time. We would strongly encourage all parents to avoid disrupting their child’s education by not taking holidays within the school term. Requests for Leave of Absence during term time should be made directly to the headteacher via the School Office . For all requests for leave of absence and application form must be completed and an appointment made with the headteacher, outlining the circumstances for the request.
