Requests for leave of absence during term-time

The following guidance has been received from Derbyshire County Council regarding the above, which we have been asked to pass on to our parents/carers.

School is only able to grant requests for leave of absence during term time for exceptional circumstances.  Leave of absence request forms can be obtained from the School Office or from the school website.  If the leave of absence is due to a holiday, the form must be submitted before booking the holiday.  Please note the new guidance (above) which comes into effect on 1 September 2017.
