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 and we celebrate this every week through our EPIC assemblies. Our attendance target is above 96%.
Holidays will not be authorised in term time unless there are exceptional circumstances, and in this instance you must request authorised leave from the headteachers.
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.
Please note that parents are required to seek permission from the headteacher to grant leave of absence during term time. Any permission granted is entirely at the headteacher's discretion although it is unlikely that the school would grant leave of absence for holiday.
