Authorised Absence Request

  • Buckswood School only authorises absences from school in exceptional circumstances. In making a request for an authorised absence from school you will need to explain why the circumstances are exceptional. Please note: There is no general right to authorise absence for a family holiday. If you take your child out of school without permission the absence will be unauthorised.

    You are advised not to make any arrangements until your request has been considered.
