We want all pupils to have the opportunity to achieve their very best and believe that high levels of attendance are crucial to this. Studies show that there is a clear link between pupil attendance at school and achievement. Leave of absence may only be granted by the school in exceptional circumstances. Parents/carers are requested therefore not to arrange leave of absence (family holidays) during term time. See the Term Dates page under Communications tab for our Holiday List.
If your child is unwell you should contact school to explain the reason. Where there is no contact from parents to explain an absence, the attendance co-ordinator will record an unauthorised absence. All absences from school must be explained by a note or phone call from parents and as much notice given as possible.
