Attendance for the academic year 2017/18 was 95%.
For children to achieve their best it is essential that they attend school regularly and on time. This is the shared responsibility of parents, the school and the Local Authority.
If there are occasions when this is unavoidable, please notify us when your child is going to be late.
Please contact the school office as soon as possible on the first day of absence. If notification is not received the absence will be recorded as unauthorised. Please advise a member of the school office team if your child has a medical appointment and requires collecting during the school day. We do urge, wherever possible that appointments are booked out of school time.
Parents are strongly discouraged from removing their child from school during term time for holidays. Permission will not be given for holidays, however leave of absence will be granted for exceptional circumstances. Permission must be sought from the Headteacher before any arrangements are made – the appropriate form is available from the School Office.
Please see our school attendance policy.
