Compassionate Leave Request
Compassionate Leave refers to the need to return home quickly when close family is either seriously ill or has died. In these circumstances, a teacher is granted immediate leave and, if requested, offered assistance with travel arrangements. As Compassionate Leave marks a sensitive time for those involved, discussions regarding return to work, whilst important, are not prioritised by the school. Due to the nature of Compassionate Leave, filling out this form is not a prerequisite.
