Westmorland Show 2022

Guidance notes regarding The Westmorland Show 2022

This year’s Westmorland show takes place on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th September and we just wanted to clarify our policy on pupils who need to attend the show.  

As a farming community, QES recognise the importance of these events for those directly involved in it, but will not authorise absences without prior permission.   

Therefore we will once again be able to authorise pupils to attend the show if they are involved in it, as long as we are informed of their intentions and given valid reasons in advance. 

Pupils helping show animals, sell produce or supporting the family business in some practical way can apply for work experience absence, as long as the request for a day’s absence is made to the student absence email by Monday 5th September.  Such absences will be authorised by the school as ‘work experience’ and will not adversely affect their attendance record. 

Obviously, as ever, pupils who absent themselves from school without our authorisation or for no valid reason will be marked down as an ‘unauthorised absence’, as has always been the case. 

Thank you for your support in this matter and we hope those taking part have a good day.
