Good attendance is very important. Parents are responsible for ensuring that healthy children are in school by 8.55 am. In the event of absence, please inform us on the first morning. Details of how to report absences and the the absence text line can be found by clicking here. Any child with an unexplained reason for absence must be entered on the register as an unauthorised absence.
Holidays during term time cannot be authorised, unless there are exceptional circumstances. Should this be the case, holiday request forms are available to print yourself here, or you can pick one up from the school office. These must be completed in advance and sent to the Headteacher for consideration. If your child/ren has unauthorised holiday of over 9 sessions (4.5 days) in any 6 month period of an academic year, then a Penalty Notice (fine) may be issued by the Local Authority. Details of the Local Authority Penalty Notices for uauthorised holidays in term time can be found by clicking here.
If your child falls ill at school, we will use the phone numbers you have given us to contact someone who can take your child home. Please keep us informed of any change to contact details. In an emergency we will act in loco-parentis.
