Atteandance Responsibilities

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. Should the school not receive any notification, one of our staff will contact the parents/carers to attain the reason.

 Parents/carers who wish to take their children on holiday must complete the necessary holiday (leave of absence) form before the holiday. Due to changes in the regulations, the Headteacher can only authorise holidays in  exceptional circumstances. A form can be requested by contacting the school office, downloaded here, or be completed online here. Notifications will then be sent by text and/or letter.

We initially aim to work with parents/carers when a pupils absence starts to become a concern. Should this be unsuccessful, the School will notify an EWO (Educational Welfare Officer) of any continuous/repeated unapproved absences, together with any special circumstances. This may lead to a penalty notice being issued.

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