Pupil Leave of Absence Requests

Commencing September 2022, we would now ask that parents submit leave of absence requests online. This includes for all medical and other appointments, or if you are seeking permission for your child to have time off for other reasons.

We would ask that parents attempt to make appointments outside of the school day wherever possible so that your child does not lose out on time spent learning. Please also ensure that you child attends school before and after appointments.

We would remind parents that holidays in term time will not be authorised (other than in exceptional circumstances) and you may be subject to a fixed penalty notice being issued to you by the Local Authority if your child is absent for 3 or more days for this reason.

Please click on this link: https://tinyurl.com/mr38enrj and follow the instructions for the completion of the form and submit this to us with enough notice to allow us to consider your request and make any staff aware of the possible absence of your child (or their need to leave school early for appointments etc).

If you need any assistance to complete the form, or you would like to discuss the circumstances of your request please email studentabsencerequest@appletonacademy.co.uk in the first instance (please also use this email address if you require the form in another format).
