Leave of Absence

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Dear Parent/Carer,

Requests for Leave of Absence

Please be reminded of the current law regarding requests for leave of absence during the school term.

As of 1st September 2013 the law gives no entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Any activity, holiday or event should be arranged during the 13 weeks of school closure. Leave of absence will have a detrimental impact on your child’s educational achievement.

If you are considering taking your child out of school, you are required to make an appointment to discuss your circumstances. Please contact the School on 0121 516 2264.

Should leave of absence be taken during term-time, parent/carers may receive a Penalty Notice from the Local Authority for taking a child out of school. Penalty Notices can cost up to £120 for each parent of each child. Sandwell Council prosecute all unpaid Penalty Notices.

If you have any questions about this matter, please do not hesitate to contact the School.

Yours sincerely,

Mawlana M.A Kadir Al Hasan BA Hons, MM, MF
