Attendance at school is vital in order that children have the best possible chance to succeed. We work with parents to secure excellent outcomes for the attendance of children. Please see below the policies and expectations regarding attendance and punctuality.

Term Time Leave of Absence

We are always concerned about the amount of school time pupils miss as a result of family holidays.  There is no entitlement to time off in term time. Leave of absence

is only allowed at the discretion of the head teacher in exceptional or special circumstances, using the following guidelines:  

The cheaper cost of holidays in term time is not an acceptable reason for an application

  • The Headteacher will not grant leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances which will still impact on the overall percentage attendance.
  • If the school does not agree to grant leave of absence, the absence will be unauthorised and will affect the percentage attendance. 
  • lease remember that the more time your child misses from school, the more difficult it is for them to catch up with their work.  Valuable learning time is lost.  A good understanding of the work can only take place when the pupil is in the classroom
