It is vital that children are in school as much as possible.  For example, we encourage them to come to school with mild colds and other minor illnesses.  The only exception is notifiable or contagious illnesses, or vomiting and diarrhoea.  (In these cases, children must be off school for 48 hours after the last episode).
If you do feel you need to take your child out of school, a leave request form must be completed- ideally - at least 6 weeks before the date(s). These can be found at the school office.  Each case is looked at on its merits, and the child's attendance to date is taken into consideration, along with the reasons for the request.  We can not guarantee that permission will be given.  Completed forms must be handed in to the office.
As always, if you have any questions, please ask.
