Absence from School for Exceptional Circumstances Request Form

Please note:

  • We advise that you do not plan for your child to be absent from school without gaining prior agreement from their school first. Headteachers cannot retrospectively authorise absence from school under any circumstance.

Any disagreement between estranged parents should be resolved prior to submitting this request to your child’s school.

[1] Parent: In this Act, unless the context otherwise requires, “parent”, in relation to a child or young person, includes any person—

who is not a parent of his but who has parental responsibility for him, or (b) who has care of him. (Education Act 1996 sec.576)
