Government legislation requires us to monitor in detail all absences from school. Your help is sought in providing such information. Please could you contact the school by telephone (01790 752242), e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or see your child's teacher personally on the day of your child’s absence.
You will be notified of your child’s attendance in writing three times in the academic year. The Education welfare Officer monitors all absences in school and may contact parents should a concern arise. Any child falling below 90% attendance will be a cause for concern and parents will be invited to an Attendance Panel meeting.
Late attendance is also monitored and can affect your child’s attendance rate. Lateness is also a cause of anxiety for children, which can affect their learning. If your child is late for school, they will need to enter through the main Reception door and be signed into school by a responsible adult.
Please note that the law states family holidays will not be authorised unless there are exceptional reasons for this. Please see also our Attendance Policy.
