It is a legal requirement for parents/carers to obtain the permission of the Headteacher before removing their child from school in order to take any leave in term time.
Parents do not have an automatic right to take their children out of school for leave during term time and may be issued with a Penalty Notice (£120 per parent per child) if they do so without prior arrangement with the Headteacher.
The legislation only allows the Headteacher to authorise such leave in exceptional circumstances.
To apply for a child to be granted leave from school parents should complete this form and return it to school for consideration well in advance of the proposed leave and before committing to any expense.
Upon receipt of a request the Headteacher will make a decision as to whether to authorise the absence, being mindful of government regulations and LA guidance.
It is important that, if you believe exceptional circumstances apply, you provide this information to school at the time of submitting this request. Information submitted at a later date will not be considered.
By definition, exceptional trips should not occur regularly.
