Excellent attendance is expected of all children. However, in the event that a child is unwell parents are asked to report absence by 8.30am each
day that they are off from school using out main number 01484 976216.
On occasions where a child’s attendance and punctuality cause concern, this is dealt with by our school attendance team. Attendance rates are
reported each term to the Local Authority, annually to the government, and to all parents. Positive systems are in place to encourage children to attend regularly and punctually, and the school is aware of its right to issue fixed penalties to parents who do not ensure good attendance and punctuality which is 97% and above.
In exceptional circumstances, leave of absence may be requested in writing by submitting a letter to the Head, Miss Eastwood, at least 30 days in
advance, and explaining in detail what the exceptional circumstances are.
The school attendance team meet weekly to track and review attendance, and to put challenge and support in place to ensure high levels of
attendance in school.
