Absence Request Form


 In September 2013, amendments to the Pupil Registration Regulations came into force and these amendments have removed the statutory threshold of 10 school days and also make it clear that Governing Bodies/Principals may not grant an leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

The Keys Federation Governing Body have discussed this in detail and made the decision that leave of absence for holidays during term time will not be granted in future except for compassionate reasons.

We know that we can count on your support in this and all matters and that you are totally committed to ensuring high attendance and high outcomes for all pupils at our QUEST Schools.


If you do have any queries and wish to contact someone to discuss this, please contact the school office and ask for Mrs Pike (Learning Mentor) who will be happy to deal with any issues and answer your questions.
