In order for children to fully achieve their potential they have to be in school. Morning starts at 8.55am for K.S.1 & Early Years children and 9am for K.S.2. Being on time is essential for children to make a good start to the day and ensure they do not miss any learning.
Please inform school if your child is ill or has a medical appointment as soon as possible by phone, in writing or show your appointment card/letter at the office.
The law states that parents/carers do not have the right to remove their child from school, for the purpose of a holiday, during term time. Leave of absence can only be granted if the school is satisfied that exceptional circumstances exist. This form must be completed and signed by the Head teacher BEFORE the absence commences, otherwise an ‘unauthorised absence’ will be recorded and may lead to a fixed penalty fine issued by the Local Authority. Please note permission will not be granted for any reason during test periods.
At the end of each term, those children whose attendance is 100% receive a reward e.g., a party or film & popcorn. For any children who achieve 100% over the whole year receive an extra special treat and trophy in assembly.Leave of absence Guide for Parents Absence in term time form Attendance Data 16 - 17 Attendance data 15 - 16
