Leave of Absence Request

It may be that in exceptional circumstances, a short absence is agreed to. In these extreme cases, discretion will be exercised. A number of factors will be taken into account. These include the urgency of the request, the impact upon learning, progress and achievement and the number of previous days' absence for the student.

The school does not authorise term time holidays. This is because of the impact upon progress and learning. If a holiday goes ahead, it is our policy to mark the absence as an unauthorised holiday absence. We recognise that holiday periods are more expensive and that many families have to travel long distances to visit relatives. We also recognise that parents and carers may choose to proceed with the absence without authorisation. However, we wish to make it clear that our records will state that the absence was not authorised.

Marking Policy

Students should all be aware of:

  • Their level for the section of work;
  • Their successes with the section of work;
  • How to improve the section of work.

This policy aims to help students to reach or exceed their full academic potential. To achieve this aim, there must be a uniform approach across the school.

Admissions Policy

The following principles should be applied in a manner consistent with Leicestershire's continuing commitment to comprehensive community education and the curriculum statement to the benefit of all students.

2017/2018 Admissions Policy

2018/2019 Admissions Policy

Admissions arrangements of all mainstream academies and free schools must comply with the School admissions code and the School admissions appeals code.

Each year Manor High School is required to carry out a consultation regarding any proposed changes in our schools' published admission numbers or oversubscription admission criteria. Our consultation will run for 6 weeks from November 2017 to January 2018. The determined admissions arrangements must be published on our website by 1st March 2018. This policy will operate from Autumn 2019. It will apply to all admissions for the school year 2019-2020 and for subsequent years until further notice.

For clarification, Manor High School do not run waitlists for entry into any year group, with the exception of Year 7 at the main transfer cycle. The Year 7 oversubscription list (OSL) will run for Year 7 only until the end of the autumn term of the transfer year.
