Leave of Absence

Families wishing to take their children out of school during term time must always submit an application for leave to the Head of School.

Four year olds

Leave of absence is always granted for four year old children, as they have not yet reached the age of compulsory schooling. It is, however, essential to submit a Leave of Absence form to the Head of School. Please also notify the class teacher in advance of the absence.

Five year olds

Five year old children may be exempt from school for a maximum of five hours per week. An written application for this should be lodged in advance with the location leader.

Above the age of six

Families wishing to take their children out of school during term time must return the completed Request for Leave of Absence form to the Location Leader, eight weeks in advance, with the exception of medical and dental appointments.
