NB: for absences such as medical appointments, funerals, religious observance etc. please contact reception (in most cases they will be able to process these for you on the phone without referring them to the Headteacher).

Only complete this form for family holiday requests. Please make sure that you complete the form at least two weeks before the start date of the requested absence.


    I am aware that the Headteacher, in response to national guidance, will only authorise holiday absences in exceptional circumstances. I ask that the school agrees this absence for the reasons set out below. I understand that the Headteacher will send his/her response to reception, who will make contact with me via email.
