Request for Leave

Taken from Bushey Primary Education Federation's Attendance Policy:

Parents do not have the right to take their child out of school for a holiday or any other reason. If in exceptional circumstances parents apply to the Headteacher, in writing, at least 2 weeks in advance, the school may grant authorised absence. Requests for absences will be considered individually. When making the decision the Headteacher will consider the following factors:

  • the amount of time requested;
  • age of the child;
  • the child’s general absence/attendance record;
  • proximity to SATs and assessment periods;
  • child’s ability to catch up the work;
  • child’s educational needs;
  • general welfare of the child;
  • circumstances of the request / purpose of the leave;
  • frequency of the activity;
  • when the request was made.
