Attendance policy

Our attendance policy can be here 





Parents/carers should aim to notify the school by 9.30 am on each day of absence  unless an absence is known in advance e.g.  awaiting test results, 48 hours after being sick etc. The school will contact the parents/carers, of any pupil’s un-notified absence on the first day of absence.

 Parents/carers taking their children on holiday must complete the necessary ‘holiday’ form before the holiday. Due to changes in the regulations, we can only authorise holidays in  exceptional circumstances. Holiday notification forms can be requested by contacting the school office or downloaded here.

 The School will notify an EWO (Educational Welfare Officer) of any continuous/repeated unapproved absences, together with any special circumstances.

 Should you wish to discuss any issues with your child's attendance, please contact us.
