This form MUST be emailed (digital copy) or handed to the attendance office (hard copy).  Please attach any  travel documents in order for it to be processed. 

Once emailed to the school, a member of the attendance team will be in contact regarding the application for leave.

Students will then be given an Assessment Table form to consult their teachers about class work and assessment completion during the intended leave period. 

Once these are completed the Principal and/or Head Teacher Administration will consider approving the leave request.
