Can I take my child out of school during term time?
Term time absences will only be authorised in exceptional circumstances. If you wish to request a leave of absence for your child please complete the form from the office and return to school. Unauthorised absences may result in a penalty notice being issued.
What if my child is ill?
Parents must inform school that their child is absent before 9.00am by telephone. Parents are encouraged to leave a message.
What if my child has a medical appointment during the school day?
We encourage parents to book appointments where possible outside of the school day however we do understand that in some circumstances this is just not possible. Please present you child's appointment card at the office and you child's absence will be authorised.
WHAT IF MY CHILD IS LATE FOR SCHOOL?
School starts at 8.55am and the doors are open from 8.45am. Children who arrive after this time must enter school via the front door and the adult dropping them off should sign into our Reception IPad to record their child's attendance.
It is important for children to be in school for the start of their lessons. The children start work straight away and then go into assembly.
Children who are late for school will be marked as late in the register.
