Attendance and Term Time Absence

We are proud of our high attendance. Our children enjoy coming to school and our families support their children's learning by ensuring children come to school regularly and on time. 

If your child is ill, please ring us and leave a message on our answer machine or speak to us. Please make sure you tell us before registration at 8:55am. If we do not know where your child is we will contact you just after 9am in line with safeguarding and attendance policy guidance.

In line with DFE expectations and the Local Authority guidelines, term time absence for family holiday purposes is not permitted. Where families choose to take holiday in term time of 5 consecutive school days or more then we will follow guidelines and refer the case to the Local Authority who may choose to issue a fixed penalty notice. We ask that you complete the absence form below and send to the school as far in advance as possible to advise of any holidays in term time.

Short absences for family weddings, emergencies, bereavement or funerals are all authorised absences. These absences should be notified in writing for the attention of the headteacher. 

If families have any questions they should contact the School Business Manager for more information or read the policy below.
