Attendance and absence procedure

Full details of our attendance and absence procedure are in our Pupil Attendance Policy which can be found on our policies and documents page

Holidays during term-time

Leave of absence for holidays will not be granted during term time and taking a family holiday could lead to a fixed penalty fine.   

For further information, please read the Pupil Leave of Absence Policy available on our policies and documents page or visit the Bradford Council website https://www.bradford.gov.uk/education-and-skills/school-holidays-and-term-dates/family-holidays-during-school-term-time/


Requests by Parents

A request for leave of absence must be made by the parent with whom the pupil normally resides.

Requests for leave of absence should be made in writing to the Headteacher (email is acceptable), alternatively an absence request form is available from the school office.

The request will be considered by the Headteacher and a written response will be returned to the parents either granting or declining the request.

Granting Requests
  • Requests will only be granted in exceptional circumstances e.g. bereavement, visit to a parent employed in the armed forces, emergency.
  • Each request will be considered on its merits;
  • Up to five days leave will be granted to visit a parent employed in the armed forces.
  • Up to five days will be granted depending on the bereavement circumstances and location.
  • If leave of absence is taken without consultation and school authorisation, then the absence by definition is unauthorised. This could result in a referral to the Education Social Work Service and the issue of a fixed penalty notice.
  • Absence due to illness will be authorised unless we have genuine cause for concern about the veracity of an illness. In such cases, school will request medical evidence to support the absence.
