Absence Request Form

Absence Request Form

Parents can be fined by the local authority for taking their child on holiday during term time without the consent of the school. The Local Authority’s decision to issue a fixed Penalty Notice is based on information submitted by the school. Triggers for the fixed Penalty Notice will be:


  • 18 sessions (9days) of unauthorised absence in the last 6 weeks

  • 5 consecutive days of unauthorised absence

An accumulation of unauthorised absence leading to an attendance of 90% or less.

It is important that parents understand that the initial fixed penalty notice of £60 is issued to each parent for each child. A two-parent family with two children would be fined £240.

Thanks for submitting!
