Application for student leave of absence for exceptional circumstances


As parents, you have a legal responsibility to ensure your child’s attendance at school.  Holidays should be taken during the school holiday period.


Please note that the school policy is that leave of absence requests may only be authorised in exceptional circumstances.  The Principal has discretionary powers to grant leave, taking into account the impact on the student’s learning, attendance, the time of year and the individual family circumstances.  The Principal will not, under any circumstances, authorise leave of absence of more than 10 days in any one academic year.


Penalty Notice:
Where the Principal decides that authorisation cannot be given but the absence occurs, consideration will be given to the issuing of a penalty notice in line with school policy.
