Holidays in Term Time

We hope that parents will not request leave of absence for holidays during term time as, in accordance with legislation, it is normally school policy to refuse permission. If leave of absence is required a request must be made in advance in writing to the Vice Principal (Mrs Cassidy).


Unauthorised Absences

Only the school can approve leave during term time; parents cannot. Should a pupil miss school for an activity which has not been approved it counts as unauthorised absence.
