Authorised and Unauthorised Absence
The Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006 bill has recently been amended by the Government. Under this law it used to be that in exceptional circumstances Headteachers could grant up to 10 days authorised absence from school. The government has amended this and it is now clear that
Headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. This is not a Buckinghamshire educational authority directive, but it has been brought to the attention of all Headteachers, Chair of Governors and Office Administrators.
