If you know that your child is going to be absent from school e.g dental, hospital or clinic appointments, please let the School Office staff know in advance.
Children are expected to attend school every day unless there is a good reason not to.
Holidays during term time will be considered for exceptional circumstances only. Requests should be made in writing to the Headteacher. Current levels of work and attendance records will be considered before a decision is made.
For an illness or unforeseen absence, please let us know the reason for absence as soon as possible.
School is open 195 days out 365 days a year, we expect parents and children to make the most of them.
These are absences for which we do not receive a written explanation, or days for which there is not an adequate excuse. Unacceptable excuses for a day off include: going to buy shoes or clothing, getting up late, a day off for the child’s birthday, going to see relatives.
We are required by the Government to monitor all absences and do so every week. If your child is absent then they miss valuable lessons. An average of one day missed each week adds up to one whole school year missed in four years! PLEASE help us to educate your child by ensuring they attend every day.
Are monitored each morning, by the office and/or a member of staff on the gate every day.The Gate opens at 8.40am and are closed for safety at 8.50am. Registration is from 8.50am-9am. Late slips are given to children if they arrive after 8.50am to make sure they are accounted in the school but will not be given a late mark till after 9am. Any child arriving after 9.20am will be marked as absent and will go against their attendance.
