Family Holidays and Extended Leave
Parents should make every effort to ensure that family holidays and extended leave are arranged outside of academy term time. Parents may request a leave of absence during term time where there are exceptional circumstances. Requests for leave of this type must be made in writing to the headteacher.
The headteacher may only grant such requests in exceptional circumstances and the headteacher’s decision is final on whether the request is approved, and the length of absence approved.
Parents should contact their academy immediately if there will be a cause for delay from the stated date of return. It remains the headteacher’s decision whether to authorise any request for absence during term time.
If permission is not granted, but the pupil is still absent, the absence is classed as unauthorised, and parents may be subject to further action by their academy or prosecution by the local authority.
