The above statements are not exhaustive and it is recognised that there will be times when compelling and exceptional reasons will mean absence from school.
Schools have a duty to inform the Local Authority if any pupil has 10 days or more unauthorised absence from school.

If attendance does not improve, legal proceedings may be considered by the Local Authority in accordance with Government Legislation.
Requests which promote children’s educational opportunities, and which may be judged ‘special or exceptional’ will be considered.
