Request for Absence in School Time

Following Government legislation, we are unable to authorise any requests for holidays during term time.

Please be advised that leave of absence in term time is not a right and will only be granted under exceptional circumstances. 

 Each case we considered individually; however leave will not usually be granted if your child already has low attendance or if the leave coincides with important examinations.

 A referral will be made to Haringey Local Authority and you may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) or prosecuted in a Magistrates Court if an unauthorised holiday is taken.


If you need to request absence during term time for an exceptional circumstance please complete the form below.
