Request For Leave of Absence
WHAT THE LAW SAYS:
All children must attend school during term time. Schools and headteachers are not allowed to
authorise any requests for leave of absence in term time unless it is for exceptional circumstances.
The school have to automatically report the following types of absences as unauthorised:
- All family holidays at any time during the school term
- Visiting relatives, family or friends
- Parental work or study commitments (the University of York actively endorses children’s full
attendance at school during term time)
WHAT THE HEADTEACHER WILL DO:
The headteacher is only allowed to authorise an absence if it falls under the definition of ‘exceptional
circumstances’. All other absence requests will be recorded as unauthorised on your child’s records.
