Hi ,
Was planning holiday during Easter but not getting convenient flights on the exact dates. Want to apply for 3D extra along with Easter holidays. DD has started in year 7 at WCHS. Will appreciate any prior experience with the leave application outcome.

What does their policy say? Most schools won't authorise absence for a holiday.

Policy says,"Family holidays during term time are not permitted. If students are absent without
permission the school may make a request to the Local Authority to issue a Penalty Notice."

So, looks like it's a no. Most likely, they won't grant permission.

Term-Time Leave
Family holidays during term time are not permitted. If students are absent without permission the school may make a request to the Local Authority to issue a Penalty Notice.
A copy of the School’s Attendance Policy is available from the School Office and can be accessed on the School website.
In conjunction with this policy, Woodford County High School has adopted the Redbridge Attendance Strategy, a copy of which is available upon request.
