Leave of Absence | Highcliffe School

Leave of Absence

Schools can authorise absence only in exceptional circumstances. If taking your son/daughter out of school is unavoidable, it is imperative that they make every effort to catch up with missed work on their return. 

AS A SCHOOL, OUR TARGET IS TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF LEARNING DAYS LOST THROUGH ABSENCE AND ALL STUDENTS ARE GIVEN AN ATTENDANCE TARGET OF 97% AS A MINIMUM.THE SCHOOL ACCEPTS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY LOSS OF LEARNING OR PROGRESS RESULTING FROM A TERM-TIME ABSENCE. 

Please note: There is no general right to authorise absence for a family holiday. If you take your child out of school without permission, the absence will be unauthorised and we will consider legal action. You are advised not to make any arrangements until your request has been considered.
