Appointments & Absence

Hill Park School thanks you for supporting the regular and punctual attendance of your children at school.

The school has by law a duty to record absence and the reasons for it and report as necessary to the Access to Education Officer for Brighton & Hove.

We do however fully understand that there may be periods of absence that are unavoidable. 

If you have any concerns about your child’s attendance please do contact the school and we will do our best to answer any questions you may have or offer support where we can.

We understand that appointments with medical specialists cannot always be made outside the school day, but would ask that you do try and make dental check-ups and routine doctors’ appointments outside school hours where at all possible. 


Request for leave for holidays during term time

Headteachers in Brighton and Hove are only able to authorise leave for holiday in term time in exceptional circumstances.  However, should a parent/carers  request a term time absence this should be done in writing to the Headteacher with sufficient notice. Where the decision is made not to authorise the absence,  the Headteacher will issue a letter to the parent/carer which will include a warning that a penalty notice may be issued.

 Please see the Brighton & Hove City Council Schools Information regarding requesting leave and fixed penalties for unauthorised absence.
