Leave of Absence During Term Time

Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006

Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013

The 2013 amendments to the 2006 regulations explain clearly that Head Teachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Head Teachers should also determine the number of school days a child can be away from school if leave is granted. Parents cannot authorise absences; only schools can do this. Head teachers have discretion to grant leave during school term time, but this is not an automatic entitlement.

Any leave of absence request must be submitted to the school office at least 14 days in advance of the dates requested. A leave of absence form can be downloaded from this page or a paper copy can be obtained from the school office.
