Attendance Matters!

We can only teach your child when they are in school. There is a direct link between achievement and attendance.

We therefore:

  • Regularly monitor attendance and punctuality and contact you about concerns
  • Support children who are having difficulties which impact on their attendance by looking for the best person/organisation to support your child
  • Reward good attendance through our rewards system
  • Will not authorise requests for holidays unless there are exceptional circumstances.

Any exceptional circumstances must be put in writing to the Executive Principal.

We ask that parents/carers:

  • Inform us promptly of any absences and return children to school as soon as they can
  • Try to make medical appointments out of school time
  • Avoid holidays in term time
  • Do not take time off for shopping trips, family events such as birthdays and outings
  • Parents/Carers have a legal responsibility to ensure regular and punctual attendance
  • All parents/carers should encourage their children to attend 95% or more.

Should you wish to discuss any issue with attendance please email our Attendance Team:
