If your child is absent from school, no matter what the reason may be, the school MUST be notified on the first day of absence as well as on the subsequent days, until they return to school. Please notify us as soon as possible before the beginning of the school day.
Holidays during term time will not be authorised unless there are exceptional circumstances.
If your child is absent from school without authorisation for a sustained period, the Education Welfare Service will be informed.
It is important that children are punctual so that they do not miss the beginning of each school day. This time can be important because information is often given out which ensures the smooth running of the day and helps pupils feel part of the school community.
Headteachers may not grant leave unless there are exceptional circumstances. Please use the attached Leave of Absence Request Form and hand it in to the school office.
