Absence in Term Time

All family holidays must be taken during school holiday times. Absences during term time will only be approved in exceptional circumstances.

Medical Appointments

Dental and medical appointments should be made outside school hours where possible. If medical appointments need to take place during school hours, please request leave of absence in writing as soon as possible.

If your child has a series of medical appointments, it is helpful if these can be arranged on different days and at different times, so that the same lesson is not always missed. In the case of hospital appointments we will need to see a copy of the hospital letter.

Bad Weather Arrangements

During bad weather periods please listen to BBC Radio Leeds 92.4 or Radio Aire 96.3 to hear announcements on school closures. Otherwise assume that the School is open.

School closure will also be notified to parents via the ‘Parent Mail’ online system
