At Nightingale Academy we wish to work with parents and carers to ensure that your child attends school every day and on time.

We are keen to work with parents/carers to resolve any difficulties and we are committed to improving attendance levels at school.

Application for Leave of Absence

Applications for leave of absence must be made using the Application for Leave of Absence Form and submitted to the Academy Attendance Officer.

The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 subsequently AMENDED Regulations September 2013 makes clear that Principals may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
