Permission for (pupil) absence in term time
The importance of school attendance is such that leave will only be granted where circumstances are exceptional. This is in accordance with Birmingham Local Authority’s ‘Leave in Term Time Guidance’ and a 2013 amendment to The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006.
Unless your circumstances are exceptional, if you take your child out of school it will be recorded as unauthorised absence. Please understand that this may lead to the issuing of a penalty notice and legal action taken.
In addition, if a pupil takes unauthorised leave in term time without the Head Teacher’s authorisation, and does not return to school within 20 school days, the pupil may be deleted from the school register on the 21st day. This means your child will not have a place at this school.
