Late/Absence Procedures

Leave of Absence Request Form

Leave of Absence in term time may only be granted in exceptional circumstances.  Please complete the attached form and return it to the school office should you need to make a request to take your child out of school.


It is very important that children attend school regularly, are on time and ready to learn. When children are absent they miss a wide range of learning opportunities and this impacts on their progress and attainment.

 The Local  Authority has set us the attendance target of 97%.
Please  read the  attached brochure  from the LA with  how you can ensure good  attendance  at school. We can't reach our target without your support. 

Kensworth CE Academy  does not authorise holidays in term time. Further information on our attendance procedures can be found in our Attendance Policy.

​Please note that  children  are not allowed to attend PTA events if they have been absent from school the same day. 

Illness at school 

If your child is unwell, please inform the school office on the first day of illness and then all subsequent days. If children have vomiting and/or diarrhoea they need to stay at home for 48 hours following the last episode. This is to limit spread of infection to others. You may find the information when trying to decide if your child is well enough to come into school.
