It is vital that we work together to ensure good attendance and punctuality for all of our children. This will help children to develop to their full potential.

Good routines have to be established early and continued throughout a child's school life. If your child is unwell, please contact school on the first morning of illness so that we can record the reason for absence.

If your child is allocated a medical or dental appointment during school time you will need to inform your child's teacher and collect an Authorised Medical Absence slip from the office.

We strongly recommend that children should not be taken out of school during term time and you will be required to complete an Exceptional Absence Form for the attention of the Headteacher if you are thinking of doing so.

Only in exceptional circumstances might absences in term time be authorised as the criteria is very tight. On no account will any request be authorised during the first 2 weeks of term in September, during Y2 assessments throughout May or during Y1 phonics assessments in June.

Here's what the Local Authority want you to know...    

...and they want us to show you this Video

Please note that if your child’s attendance falls below 90% you will be contacted by the Headteacher
