The school has a policy of promoting good and prompt attendance at the school. Parents/carers arriving with children after 9.00am will be deemed late. An adult accompanying the late child must sign the late book stating a reason why they are late. These “lates” will go onto the child’s record and appear on their annual report. Those arriving after 9.30am, when registration closes, without a good reason, are classified as being absent without authorisation.

Other Absences

Please inform the school in advance if possible as we cannot rely on verbal messages from your child.

Holidays during term time are strongly discouraged. Whilst “traditionally” parents have taken children out of school in term-time for holidays, this is not an automatic right. Government directives state that permission for a children’s absence in term time should only be granted in “exceptional circumstances”. Therefore, parents should discuss the situation with Mrs. Allen before any holidays are booked. Holidays will not be authorised during term time, a form will need to be completed which is obtainable from the school office.

Please note that SATS week and other times when tests are being held in School should be times when every effort possible is made to ensure that children are present.
