Absence in Term Time
Cheshire East has confirmed that where unauthorised absence exceeds 10 sessions (1 session = 1 morning or 1 afternoon registration, therefore a day equals 2 sessions) then Fixed Penalty Notices will be issued. Further information is available through the Cheshire East Website see below. Should parents consider absence during term time then a form must be completed and returned to the school office. Absence can only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. Holidays and weddings are not classed as exceptional circumstances and parents should make a careful consideration before making a request for these reasons. Each request is assessed independently and on its own merits.
