Can I take my child out of school for a special occasion?

If you want to take your child out of school, you must complete a leave of absence request form, the school will then consider granting up to ten days authorised absence.

If you choose to take your child out of school for a holiday or any other leave of absence without permission from the school, it will be recorded as a period of unauthorised absence. This means that you may be issued a penalty notice (a fine) to pay.

Please contact the School Attendance Service for more information by calling 01733 863681 or email asadmin@peterborough.gov.uk.
