Attendance

We are very proud of our Attendance Record. Our attendance for 2018/2019 was 96.7%. Our target for 2019/2020 has been set at 97%.

If your child is absent from school
If your child is absent from school it is essential that you contact the school by telephone before 9.00am. At this point, the registers will be checked and any absentees will be telephoned. Unauthorised absences (those absences for which no reasonable explanation has been given) will be recorded on your child’s attendance registration certificate and annual report. Unauthorised absences in excess of 5 school days within a seven week period will be alerted to the Local Authority who may then decide to issue you with a fixed penalty notice.

Term Time Absence and Special Occasions
In 2006, the Government made an amendment to the regulations on term time absence meaning that schools prohibited from authorising any leave in term time; unless there are exceptional circumstances. Our Attendance Policy reflects these changes.
