Leave of Absence

Dear Parents / Carers

The Department for Education statutory guidance on school attendance state that the Principal may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.

At Ormiston Maritime Academy we aim to achieve a good attendance through working in partnership with staff, pupils, parents, governors and the Education Welfare Service.

I would recommend that parents discuss leave of absence requests due to exceptional circumstances with myself as any absences from school can result in children falling behind with their school work.

Thank you for your support

Yours sincerely

Mr K Gallacher, Principal
