Regular attendance and punctuality are essential in ensuring children have every opportunity to succeed. It is the legal responsibility of parents / carers to ensure children attend and are punctual. If an absence during term time is unavoidable due to illness, please phone or email the school office before 8.30am. We operate a ‘safe to school’ procedure and will attempt to make contact on the first day of any unknown absence.
Requests for absence (that aren’t due to illness) need to be made in advance. Please note that holidays will only be authorised by the headteacher in exceptional circumstances and must be requested prior to booking. Absence Request Form can be found here.
We monitor attendance of all our children, working closely with our Education Welfare Officer.
For further information, please see our Attendance Policy.
