Please note guidance received from Shropshire Council on 1st September 2013
Belvidere School follows Shropshire and national regulations when considering applications for any leave of absence from school. Shropshire Council’s guidance refers to the change in September 2013 to the The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006.
‘Where there used to be an option for headteachers to grant leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday during term time in ‘special circumstances’ of up to ten days in a year, this has been removed.
Headteachers are now only allowed to authorise any leave of absence when an application has been made in advance, and it's felt to be for an exceptional circumstance. The annual family holiday wouldn't be deemed an exceptional circumstance’, Shropshire Council website, August 2021.
If you still wish to apply for a leave of absence for your child, please complete the form available on the school website
or request a form from reception.
