Attendance and Calendar Dates
If your child is unwell please contact the school office before 9.30am - 01270526260.
At 9.30am we will begin following up absent pupils.
Children who arrive at school after 9am must be brought, by their parents, to the school office and officially signed in. Children will be registered as 'late' if they are not in the classroom for registration at 9am.
A new law from the 1st September 2013, does not give any entitlement to parents to take their child on holiday during term time. Any applications for leave of absence must be in exceptional circumstances and the Head Teacher and Governors must be satisfied that the circumstances warrant the granting of leave. Parents can be fined by the Local Authority for taking their child on holiday during term time without consent from the school.
If you have exceptional reasons for requesting an absence for your child from school please put your request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. We have a committee of govenors who make decisions as to what is exceptional and what isn't.
Parents are likely to be fined if their child has had 10 unauthorised sessions off school (1 day = 2 sessions).
