Useful Information & Forms


As a school, we expect children to attend every session available to them in order to benefit from the educational opportunities provided.  Consistent loss of learning hours could have a detrimental effect on a child's  educational progress.  In the unlikely event that you need to take your child out of school during term time an 'Application for leave of Absence' form must be submitted prior to the absence.   Leave is only granted for exceptional circumstances, please read the form carefully before submitting a request.

Free School Transport

The transport provided will depend on the type of school your child attends. If your child is offered a place at a mainstream (foundation, community or voluntary-controlled) or (voluntary-aided faith) primary or secondary school, they could be entitled to free or assisted home to school transport. For post -16 students, the provision of transport remains a discretionary award for local authorities. Essex County Council will continue to make transport available to all post-16 students (including those with special educational needs) who qualify for assistance. For more information about the raising of participation age, visit the Department of Education. We can also help you make informed decisions if you think you have exceptional grounds for needing school transport support, if your child has special educational needs, is 16-19 or requires independent travel training.
