Absence Reporting and Term Time Leave

Term Time Leave

Whilst school acknowledges that work commitments and financial consideration may put pressure on parents to take holidays during term time, current government legislation does not allow authorised time away from school unless in ‘exceptional circumstances’.

Any leave during term time must be applied for on the following request form prior to the leave required and emailed to absencereporting@bwslive.co.uk. The Headmistress will review the application and you will be notified of her decision.

In considering a response to such a request, the Headmistress will take into account the overall attendance of the child and the individual circumstances of the request.

Any absence taken without an accepted explanation will automatically be recorded as UNAUTHORISED ABSENCE.
