Dear Teachers name,

My son, XXX XXXX, was absent on 20th and 21st Octover 2005, as he was unwell and had a high temperature/was running a fever.

(Too late for them to 'grant' leave as he was already absent. You just need to notify the school that there was a good reason for absence. One sentence usually covers it).

Thank you ('thanking you' is not British English style)

Yours sincerely (use only if you have used the teachers name, if you wish to stick to Dear Madam, you need to sign off 'Yours faithfully')

Dear nona,

One more clarification please.

In situations where I have to apply for a leave in advance, is the following draft looks reasonable ?
