Late/Absence Procedures

Requesting Absence


Absence during term time can only be authorised at the Headteacher’s discretion and only in exceptional circumstances.

If you need to request some time for your child/ren to be absent during term time please ask at the office for a Leave in Term Time Request Form.


If you wish to make an appointment to discuss the circumstances of your request for authorised absence please do so via the school office – 0121 464 5813 and ask for a request form. This will need to be completed and signed by both parents/carers or whoever has parental responsibility.


You can ask to make an appointment with Mrs Grice who will be able to advise you.
