Good attendance is key to ensuring children make good progress. Please see our attendance policy on the policies page or by clicking the link below.
Children are expected to attend school every day unless there is a good reason not to.
If you know that your child is going to be absent from school e.g dental, hospital or clinic appointments, you should inform the school office in advance. For an illness or unforeseen absence, please inform the school office by 9am and provide evidence in the form of appointment cards and letters of correspondence.
These are absences for which we do not receive a written explanation, or days for which there is not an adequate reason. Unacceptable reasons include: going to buy shoes or clothing, getting up late, a day off for the child’s birthday, going to see relatives.
Parents must telephone the office on the first morning of absence for illness by 9am. When no call has been received, the school will attempt to make contact with the parent. If no contact or no appropriate reason is given, the absence will be recorded as unauthorised.
Late Arrivals (Please refer to school times above)
Being late to school can be extremely unsettling for children particularly when they arrive into class and teaching has already begun. This can completely unsettle their start to the day and have a negative impact on teaching and learning for them and also for other children.
Where persistent late marks keep arising on a weekly basis with no sign of improvement, parents will be invited to discuss this with the EWO.
Request for leave and Term Time Holiday Requests.
Holidays during term time will be considered for exceptional circumstances only. Requests should be made in writing to the Headteacher using the request for absence form available from the school office or via the link below. Current levels of work and attendance records will be considered before a decision is made.
