Holidays in Term Time

There is no automatic right to any leave of absence and schools in Coventry adopt a policy of not authorising leave.

 

Authorised absence

An absence is classified as authorised when a child has been away from school for a legitimate reason and the school has received notification from a parent or guardian e.g. an absence due to a child being unwell.

 

Unauthorised absence

An absence is classified as unauthorised when a child is away from school without the permission of the school.

 

Any leave taken without authorisation can lead to parents being issued with a penalty notice. 

 

Requests for leave of absence

Parents who wish to request leave of absence must do so in writing (letter or email). When there are exceptional circumstances, a leave of absence will be authorised.

Respect
  • A culture is strong when people work with each other, not for themselves. Simon Sinek
Equality

Challenge
  • Come to the edge. We might fall. Come to the edge. It's too high! Come to the edge. And they came, and he pushed, and they flew. Christopher Iogne
Resilience
  • Resilience comes from the Latin word 'resalire', which means springing back.
Responsibility
  • You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. Jane Goodall
