Can the Headteacher authorise my absence?

The Headteacher cannot, and will not, authorise school absence solely for the purpose of a family holiday. There may be many reasons for which a family may wish to plan a holiday in term time, including restrictions at work or financial opportunities, however, these do not override the constraints placed on Head teachers not to authorise ‘family holidays’.


For work circumstances to be exceptional, they would be a one off request and not an annual event.
