Attendance at school is very important both for the wellbeing and future success of all children. At Trumpington Park, we are committed to supporting families to ensure children regularly attend school so that they can excel in their educational pathway. Below are some links to documents which you may find useful.
Term Time Absence Request Form
Term time absence is strongly discouraged.
However, if you need to request it, please ensure you submit this request IN ADVANCE of your child being absent from school.
We ask for 3 weeks' notice for admin and discussion. Decisions will be notified in writing. You may be asked to supply further information or attend a meeting to discuss your request.
