Taking children out of class for annual holidays is highly undesirable as evidence shows that taking a child out of school during term time can hinder progress.

Absences for non-essential reasons, e.g. holidays, shopping, parties, theatre visits, etc., will be counted as unauthorised absence.

Please note that it is proven that any absence from school over two weeks in any year will have an effect on overall standards achieved.

Please come into the office to pick up an absence request form and return this with a letter if it is necessary for your child to be absent from school.
