Whilst the school understands that there may be a need to take children out of school for family holidays, it is not desirable. Leave of absence for a child to accompany parents on holiday during a school term is not allowed unless the approval of the Executive Headteacher or Head of School is obtained beforehand. Parents should write to the Head requesting an authorised absence and stating why it is needed during term time. The Head will refuse to approve the leave of absence if it coincides with SATs tests and also if the child's attendance is less than 95%.
