Request leave outside school holidays
To request leave outside the school holidays you can collect a form at the administration office of our school. This form can also be downloaded from the website and you can find it under downloads.
Compulsory Education Law
In September 2018, we had consultations with the school attendance officer of the municipality of Groningen who advises the GSV. In that conversation, we once again discussed the legal frameworks and the permitted options concerning applications for leave by parents. That procedure and a summary of the possibilities when applying for leave have been published in a brochure. Attached you will find the text of that brochure from the municipality of Groningen.
The GSV will follow these legal agreements when assessing your applications. If there are other reasons to request leave than those described below, the principal will take a decision in consultation with the school attendance officer. If your request for leave is rejected by the law and regulations, then this will be explained briefly on the reply letter you receive on your application.
The GSV will continue to use its own forms (via website or administration) and we will continue to follow the procedure, as described in the school guide 18-19. On the website you can find our school guide 2018-2019 (under the button downloads).
