Penalty Notices for Unauthorised Leave of Absence
Our school does not permit leave in term time unless the circumstances are deemed exceptional. If you choose to go ahead and take your child on a holiday, an application for leave must be made, in advance, using the 'request for leave of absence' form, this is available from the school office. A meeting will then be arranged with Miss Stuttard—Headteacher and Mrs Smith—Attendance Officer for you to explain the reason you have chosen to take the leave.
Penalty notices are issued by and paid to the Local Authority. A penalty notice applies to all adults who are seen as having responsibility for the child. The cost of this is £120 per adult per child, payable at a lower rate of £60 if paid within 21 days.
