It is important to talk to the Head teacher or class teacher before a decision to take leave is made and complete and submit an application form at least 6 weeks beforehand.
- Leave of absence is not an entitlement and must be applied for in each case. Head teachers can only authorise term time leave in special circumstances.
- Head teachers may grant leave of absence for more than 2 weeks, but only in exceptional circumstances.
- Head teachers will only grant leave of absence if the pupil’s education is unlikely to suffer.
- Parents may be breaking the law if their children take leave without permission.
- In some cases schools may take children who are absent without permission off roll.
Talk to school the head teacher or class teacher when you join a school community about your family’s beliefs and their potential impact on your child’s school attendance.
- Give as much notice as possible of any likely absence and the reasons for it.
- If your child has to be involved in religious ceremonies attached to a family wedding, funeral or other occasion, let the school know as early as possible when this will be and what is expected of the child.
- Discuss with school staff whether there is any school work that your child could do during the time they will be absent so they do not fall too far behind.
