Attendance

Our children enjoy learning and want to be in school.  Good attendance is key to learning and development and we expect you to make sure that your child attends school regularly and on time

Children are rewarded for good attendance through rewards, such as free school trips if their attendance is above 98%.

Holidays will not be authorised in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances, and in this instance you must request authorised leave from the Headteacher.

What to do if your child is absent:

We understand that sometimes children are ill or have a need to attend appointments and so ask you to telephone school by 8.45am on the first day of their child’s absence. For longer periods of absence it is important to notify the school of the ongoing cause and the likely date of return of your child.
