Attendance Guidance

ATTENDING SCHOOL EVERY DAY helps your child:

WHEN YOUR CHILD IS UNWELL

If your child is unwell and unable to attend school, we ask that you call the school office by 8.30am to let us know of the absence. We will require your child’s name, class and reason.

AS PARENTS/CARERS IT IS YOUR LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT YOUR CHILD COMES TO SCHOOL REGULARLY.

COMING TO SCHOOL ON TIME EVERY DAY helps your child:

REQUESTS FOR ABSENCES

HOLIDAYS – as a school we are NOT permitted to authorise any holidays taken outside of the term dates. The termly dates can be found on our website, newsletters or via the school office. These are published at the end and start of each school year. Any absence taken for this, will be coded as UNAUTHORISED.

If you require leave from school, for whatever reason, you must obtain a ‘Request form’ from the school office. It is always appreciated if requests are made prior to any arrangements being made.
