    Primary School

    Special Leave of Absence

    We ask parents to make contact with the school on the first day of absence, and the school office will follow up with parents that we have not heard from on the same morning.

    National policy no longer allows schools to authorise holidays.  Special leave may however be granted in "exceptional circumstances".

    These circumstances include:

    • Weddings
    • Religious Observance
    • Funerals 

    Our policy on this is shared with most schools in Torbay. The full attendance policy can be found within the policy section of this website.

    Please see link below which is a briefing paper following the outcome of the Isle of Wight case.
