Absences and Holidays

Mundella Primary School is committed to the continuous raising of achievement of all our pupils. Regular attendance is critical if our pupils are to be successful and benefit from the opportunities presented to them.

One of our basic principles is to celebrate success. Good attendance is fundamental to a successful and fulfilling school experience. We actively promote 100% attendance for all our pupils and we use a variety of weekly, termly and annual awards to promote good attendance and punctuality.

The Governors, Headteacher and Staff in partnership with parents have a duty to promote full attendance at Mundella Primary School.


For additional information look at our Attendance Policy.

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.
