Absences

The school operates a computerised attendance module. We have excellent records for attendance and encourage parents to ensure their children are at school on time. If a child is absent from school due to illness then parents should telephone the school as early as possible on the first day of absence. When the child returns to school, they should bring a short note confirming the reasons for absence.  Please try to keep absences as infrequent as possible as they do disrupt your child's education.

Schools can no longer authorise absence for holidays. If you wish to remove your child from school for any activity during the school term, a letter requesting the absence should be sent to the Headteacher.
