Please do not book holidays during school time. In exceptional circumstances leave can be agreed in person by the Headteacher. In these cases firm dates of departure and return are agreed. Please complete a Leave of Absence form should you require time away from school. Failure to keep to an agreed return date can mean that a child can lose their place in the school. If there are problems with your child’s attendance and punctuality our Educational Welfare Officer, employed by Ealing Local Authority may visit you at home.
