Advance application for leave of absence
Good attendance at school provides vital continuity of learning for your son/daughter. If your child is absent from school for any period, they will miss important elements of their learning.
Absence on unforeseeable grounds (illness, travel disruption or emergency medical appointments) should be communicated to the school by phone 01296 689720 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org on each and every day of absence before 9.00am.
Unavoidable appointments (medical, dental etc.) should be covered by this form and be submitted to the school not less than one week before the initial period of absence. The headteacher would normally expect students to make medical/dental/optician appointments out of school time.
