Leave of Absence (LOA) within Term Time

As a school we would not advise taking LOAs within term time as this is disruptive to your child’s education. Further information on the schools stance regarding LOAs can also be found in the Pupil Attendance Policy .

Leave of Absence Forms

Any parent wishing to apply for a leave of absence must first make an application to the school by filling in the Pupil LOA Form .
