We expect your child to attend school every day, however, if your child is ill and unable to attend, please inform the school office before 9am. As a school we have a duty of care and therefore if we do not hear from you we will contact you via a phone call or carry out a home visit.
The school office is open from 8.30am – 4.30pm Mon-Thu & 8:30am – 4:00pm Fri. Messages can be left on the answerphone out of these hours.
• If your child has a medical appointment, please bring your appointment card/ letter to the office where we can authorise the absence. • Remember – every day spent in school helps your child to make progress. • Children whose attendance falls below 95% will be classed as persistent absentees and be invited in to meet with the Headteacher to discuss what support can be offered to improve attendance.
Planned Absence & Holiday Requests
PLEASE NOTE THE SCHOOL WILL NOT AUTHORISE ANY HOLIDAYS.
In exceptional circumstances, such as children of members of the armed forces, acute crisis within the family and court order/formal agreement where parents have separated, it may be possible to review this.
