Children should arrive at school in good time, but we request that unless they are attending breakfast club, please do not arrive before 8.45am. As I’m sure you are aware, parents/carers are legally responsible for their child’s attendance at school and must ensure regular attendance.
If your child is absent for any reason - please inform the school in person. You can call on 01989 562738 and select option 1 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please leave your child's full name, class and reason for absence.
Attendance records are kept and published annually as required by law. Children will not normally be allowed to leave the premises for medical appointments, unless a note or personal call has been received, and parents/carers (over 18 yrs) must collect children if they are to leave school during the school day.
Attendance records of all pupils are monitored monthly by the Headteacher and Attendance Leader. We will contact parents/carers whenever we are concerned about the levels of absence.
Due to legislation we are unable to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Therefore, any unauthorised absence (5 days and over within a term) will result in an immediate penalty notice of £60 per child, per parent.
For further information, please see the attendance policy on the policies tab of the homepage.
