How To Write A Leave Application for School, Office & College?

Leave application writing format should include reason for leave and it's important to make sure that it is acceptable by your school/college/office. A decent reason for leave application request in a specific format will not be declined without any justification, particularly, when it is due to some personal reasons like illness, urgent piece of work or for visiting sick parents etc.

The leave application format should consider the following guidelines.

  • Whom to submit leave application?
    - Submit leave application to your reporting Manager (for office) or Principal (for school/college)

  • Use Your Professional Email address
    - Leave application needs to be sent from your office email address (for office) or the one which is registered with school or college (for school/college).

  • Subject for leave application
    - Subject for leave application can be in the format like "Leave Application - Your name"

  • Use Professional Font
    - Make sure that the leave application is written in a font which is easily readable to any of the recipients.

  • Begin with a greeting
    - Always open your leave application with a greeting as it is directed towards your Manager or Principal. Do not skip the greeting and always be respectful.

  • First paragraph - introduce yourself (if required)
    - If you are writing leave application to someone you don't have an existing relationship with, such as a headmaster, principal, new manager, tell them who you are.

  • Second paragraph - Set the leave context with purpose or reason
    - It’s ok to be direct in writing leave application, get to the point as long as you are polite. Mention the purpose or reason for your leave and leave period.

  • Third paragraph - Closing statement
    - Be polite to thank your reader with some polite closing remarks.

  • Include Signature
    - It's important to include your signature with every leave application that you submit. Your signature includes your name and your phone number, so the recipient can see, at a glance, how to contact you.

  • Include attachments (if required)
    - If you need to include any attachments, don't simply attach it. Make sure to mention them in the body of the leave application format.

  • Final scan with spell check
    - Finally, before you submit leave application, review and spell check your leave application to make sure it’s truly perfect!

simple best leave application format mail email sample

Leave applications that I received over a decade are depicted in the above image. Sick leaves are the most common type of leave that is used (45%) across school, college and offices. Then comes the casual leaves and privilege leaves with 30% and 22% respectively. Other leaves like Maternity leaves, Paternity leaves, Bereavement leaves and loss of pay type of leaves are rarely applied. I have explained the broader types of leaves in the below section.

  • Sick Leave
  • Privilege/ Earned/ Annual Leave
  • Casual Leave
  • Maternity Leave
  • Paternity Leave
  • Bereavement Leave
  • Leave without Pay

Sick Leave is provided to an employee in case of personal illness or injury. Sometimes, leave application should be supported by a medical certificate issued by a doctor, clinic or hospital as per the policy in your organization. Generally, accumulated sick leaves will not qualify for any kind of encashment. Read more on application for sick leave

Privilege/ Earned/ Annual Leave provides an opportunity to an employee to take a break from work and spend time on personal as well as leisure activities with family and friends. An employee is entitled to get some fixed working days of leave every year as per the organization policy. Privilege Leaves can be carried forward and accumulated based on the policy defined in your organization. Accumulated privilege leaves will get encashed only at the time of separation in most of the organizations. Read more on leave application for office
