Here at Norham we really want the best for your child.  With this in mind we would very much like it if you did not book any holidays during term time.

We expect every child to maintain 95% attendance or above and for every school day that your child misses the negative impact on their education increases.

If you would like to apply for a Leave of Absence for your child then you have to get permission from the head teacher if you want to take your child out of school during term time.

You can only do this if:

  • you make an application to the head teacher in advance (as a parent the child normally lives with)
  • there are exceptional circumstances

It’s up to the head teacher how many days your child can be away from school if leave is granted.

The Leave of Absence form is downloadable via the link below.
