LEAVE OF ABSENCE
Parents/Guardians must ask permission for their child to miss school. If Parents/Guardians don’t, they risk a penalty notice. Primary and Secondary schools in Leeds follow a common policy on holiday absence, but it is up to the Head Teacher to decide whether or not the absence will be authorised.
Parents / Guardians wishing to apply for their child to have leave from school should complete a holiday form and return it to school for authorisation well in advance of the proposed leave.
MEDICATION IN SCHOOL
Whilst we believe that sick children should be at home, we are prepared to administer medication that has been prescribed by a doctor to children from their own - clearly labelled - medication. This will not be done unless the medicine is prescribed and a parent has signed the permission sheet. Medication must not be given to the classroom teacher and no substitute will be made if the child has no medication in school.
Parents have prime responsibility for their child's health and so we will collect all relevant information from the parents prior to any course of medicine being dispensed. We expect parents to give full and honest information about their child's condition.
Please complete this form and hand into the Main Office along with the prescribed medication.
