Good attendance is essential to enable your child to fulfil their potential.
On the first day of your child’s absence please contact the school (before 9.25am) and provide a likely return date where possible. If this is not possible the school makes contact with parents before 9.30am.
If a child needs to be absent for any reason other than illness, prior permission for leave of absence is required from the Head Teacher. This will only be given in exceptional circumstances.
We would also ask that your children arrive at school on time. Late arrival can cause the children to miss an important introduction to a lesson, which can lead to misunderstanding.
Parents experiencing difficulties with any aspect of their child’s attendance should contact the school.
Our Education Welfare Officer may be able to offer advice and support.
