Application for Leave of Absence in Term Time

Parents and carers are strongly urged not to book holidays or take special leave during school term time because

  • Your child will miss out on important school work and may not be able to catch up. This could have serious consequences on progress, attainment and opportunities later in life.
  • Other pupils' education could be affected - the time teachers have to help all the children in a class is reduced if they spend time helping your child catch up after a holiday.
  • Educational experiences in school missed as a result of a family holiday cannot be re-captured later.

There are 190 school days in a year - this leaves 175 days for holidays, cultural activities and family time.

If you feel that absence from school in term time is absolutely unavoidable, complete this form and return it to the headteacher. Please be advised that holidays in term time are not a right and will only be granted under exceptional circumstances. Each case is considered individually; however, leave will not usually be granted if your child already has low attendance or if the leave coincides with important examinations.

PLEASE FILL OUT THE COMPLETED APPLICATION FORM BELOW GIVING AT LEAST 4 WEEKS' NOTICE OF INTENDED ABSENCE.

We are delighted to invite you to our upcoming open events. We host both a range of Open Mornings and our annual Open Evening on Thursday 5th October. We look forward very much to welcoming families to EGA and getting to show them more about what our school has to offer its students and community. Open Mornings: Open Mornings run from 9.15am-10:30am and will include a talk from students, the headteacher as well as a tour of lessons around the school. There is no need to book to attend an open morning, please just arrive at our main reception for 9.15am. Tuesday 26th September 9.15am-10:30am Thursday 28th September 9.15am-10:30am Tuesday 10th October 9.15am-10:30am Thursday 12th October 9.15am-10:30am Open Evening - Thursday 5th October 2023 5:00-7:30pm Our open evening is a chance to visit the school and explore the fantastic facilities we have to offer. You will hear from our headteacher,  tour all the areas of the school and meet the amazing members that make up our school community. The open evening is also a great time to be able to discuss curriculum and opportunities with our teachers. Many EGA students also volunteer to support at Open Evening so you will have plenty of chances to ask them any questions you might have. You do not need to book a slot for our open evening. However, to help us ensure a smooth experience, we suggest arriving towards the start of one of the following slots: 5:00-5:45pm / 5:45-6:30pm / 6:30-7:15pm We recommend attending both Open Evening and an Open Morning to get the full experience of what is on offer at EGA as both events offer a different experience.
