    About Us

    Absences & Holidays

    If your child is absent through sickness or any other reason even for a short time, please telephone the school on the first day of absence. If your child is absent with no reason given we will telephone, text or write to you to seek clarification. When your child returns to school please send a note of explanation to the child’s class teacher. It will also be necessary to have our medical card stamped or provide a letter of the appointment to the  school when your child must attend for a medical appointment. A pass will be issued at the school office giving permission for absence. On these occasions children should always be collected by a responsible adult.

    Holidays In Term Time

     From September 2013, the Department for Education have amended the Pupil Registration Regulations, removing the Headteacher’s ability to authorise leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday. Requests for holidays taken during term time will not be authorised. The attendance service may issue a penalty notice to each parent, for each child taken out of school for an unauthorised holiday during term time.

    For any further advice, please contact our Senior Family Liaison Officer, Carol Gretton.
