From September 2013 the DfE has amended the 2006 attendance regulations removing references to family holiday and extended leave.
The amendments make clear that Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. In exceptional circumstances permission may be granted at the discretion of the Headteacher. A Request for Leave form is available from the school office.
