Leave of Absence Request

Applications for Term Time Leave of Absence

This is the place to apply for a planned absence.

Promoting good attendance and reducing absences, including persistent absences is a key part of our role at Round Hill. The Government states that headteachers may not grant any leave of absence for holidays during term time unless there are “exceptional circumstances”.

Parents requesting leave of absence due to “exceptional circumstances” should complete this form at least four weeks before the anticipated start date. Applications should be made before the leave is arranged, otherwise it may not be granted

Please note: if the Office Team require any further information from you regarding this absence, they may contact you using the details held on file.

At Round Hill Primary School we have always worked hard to support all children/young people and their families so as to ensure that all children/young people have good attendance. We feel we have a very good relationship with our community and we fully appreciate that the experience children have on holiday with their family can be incredibly valuable and one which we believe promotes learning. However, as the headteacher, I cannot break the law and I am duty bound to comply with the regulations.
