Good attendance is essential for all children and therefore attendance data is carefully monitored. If your child is ill please contact the office before 9.00am on the first day of illness. The office is open from 8.30am.
If you know in advance that your child is going to be absent due to medical appointments please contact the office directly to inform us. You may be asked to show evidence of appointments. Unexplained absences or those not considered appropriate will be registered as unauthorised absences.
Our school target is at least 96% attendance. If, for exceptional reasons, leave of absence is necessary during term time a leave of absence request form must be completed and returned before the absence is due to begin. All requests for leave of absence will receive a reply. When considering whether to authorise a leave of absence the headteacher will take into account factors such as current attendance levels.
