Absences

All the pupils and students at St Dominic’s are funded by their Local Authority.   We, and they, expect pupils and students to attend school consistently and develop good learning habits. For this reason, we ask that parents take family holidays outside term time.

If you require an exceptional leave of absence for your son or daughter, please print the below form and send the completed form to your child’s Form Tutor.  They will then pass it to the Principal for approval.
