Leave of Absence

Taking your child out of school during term time may harm your child’s academic progress.  Absences may only be authorised at the discretion of the Principal in Exceptional circumstances. 

Please see the Wiltshire Council leaflet Leave of absence – Guidance for parents which is also available from the School Office.  Circumstances which are notified to the School after a decision has been made by the Principal will not be considered.  Therefore please be certain to provide details of the exceptional circumstances relating to your application on the form below and attach any supporting evidence. 

Please be aware that holidays will not be authorised for reasons that do not meet the Local Authority criteria very closely and penalties will be issued from September 2020 for any unauthorised absences.   Should you wish to apply for authorised holidays you must apply in advance of the dates.
