Leave of Absence from School

In pursuance of arrangements made by the governing body of the school, on application made by the parent or other person having charge of the pupil he or she may, exceptionally, be granted leave of absence from the school.

At Arnold Hill Academy we recognise that pupils will only maintain a high standard of school work and maximise their full potential to achieve excellence through regularly attending school during term time as determined by the school calendar.

For those pupils currently undertaking their level 2 subjects in Years 9, 10 and 11, it is especially important to remember that colleges of Further Education and other post-16 providers may request attendance data from the school for any application they receive from your son/daughter. Poor school attendance is likely to disadvantage them academically whilst at school and when applying for post-16 courses or Further Education provision.
