Student Absence Request Form
To request a leave of absence for your child/children during term time, please complete the form below and email this to the school attendance officer via firstname.lastname@example.org, including any supporting evidence.
Alternatively, the form can be collected from the school office or from your child’s Assistant Head of Year and then returned to the school office, along with any relevant evidence. Please ensure a separate form is used for each absence that you are requesting for each child.
Forms are to be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to the absence request, and please note that there is no automatic right for students to be granted authorised leave of absence and requests will only be considered where there are exceptional circumstances, in line with guidance from Solihull MBC and the Government.
This form will replace the current process where parents/carers write a letter to the Principal to request such types of leave for students.
