Request for Leave during Term Time
The default position of the school is that requests for absences will not be granted during term time and will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. If an event can reasonably be scheduled outside of term time then it would not be normal to authorise absence. Absence during term time for holidays is therefore not considered an exceptional circumstance. The fundamental principles for defining ‘exceptional’ are rare, significant, unavoidable and short.
