Under the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations 2006 (amended by the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2013, Principal's/Headteachers have the authority/discretion to authorise absence of a pupil due to exceptional circumstances only. It is not a parental right to take leave during term time, the decision lies solely with the Principal/Headteacher of the registered school. Parents must make a request for leave during term time giving the exceptional circumstances for the request and it is at the Principal’s/Headteachers discretion to determine whether that request should be granted.
