We believe it is vital for parents and school to support each other in maximising their children’s attendance to enable them to achieve their potential.
Our First Day Contact Policy means that parents should contact the school on the first day of any absence to inform us why their child is not attending. If absences remain unexplained by parents, they will not be authorised and the Education Welfare Officer may become involved.
Holidays in term time are strongly discouraged and will only be allowed in exceptional circumstances. Applications for any leave of absence must be submitted to the head teacher with at least 14 days notice. A form is available from the school office for this purpose.
For further information please refer to our Attendance Policy for Parents, which can be found in the 'Policies & Leaflets' section.
