Leave of Absence Requests

We are no longer able to authorise holiday leave of any kind within term-time, this is now statutory. The expectation that parents of particular professions could take leave due to their job has been removed, as has the reference to ’10 days’ of allowable leave. Students taking time off for holidays or holiday-type activities will be recorded as ‘Unauthorised’ absence; we will disaggregate those figures to any outside agency that makes a request for attendance data. The Headteacher still has some powers to authorise absence in exceptional circumstances.

For routine requests like interviews, medical treatment, open days and funerals, the school policy remains unchanged.

School Policies 


We expect a high standard of dress - please help your child to keep to our dress code. Purchasing items for school which do not meet our requirements can prove very expensive. Please check at school if you are uncertain. There is an up-to-date uniform list in your child’s planner. Find out more about the school uniform below:
