Excellent attendance is expected of all children.
However, in the event that a child is unwell parents are asked to report absence by 8.30 am on the first day using our main school number 01924 495790.
On occasions where a child’s attendance and punctuality cause concern, this is dealt with by our school attendance officer- Mrs Cooper. Attendance rates are reported each term to the LA, annually to the government, and to all parents. Positive systems are in place to encourage children to attend regularly and punctually, and the school is aware of its right to issue fixed penalties to parents who do not ensure good attendance and punctuality.
In exceptional circumstances, leave of absence may be requested in writing by submitting a letter to the head at least 30 days in advance, and explaining in detail what the exceptional circumstances are.
