Attendance

Please take some time to read the policy above.

 

Please note that if it is absolutely necessary for a child to be out of school for a hospital or dentist appointment, in order for this to be authorised parents need to fill in a notification form and provide evidence. More details can be found in Section 5 of the policy.

 

Please also be aware that Mrs Wyatt (on behalf of The Governing Body) can request a penalty notice be issued to parents where it is noticed through our ongoing monitoring that there is an emerging pattern of unauthorised absence. More details can be found in section 11 of the policy.

 

As you know school are not permitted to grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances. Any term time leave of absence requests need to be submitted to Mrs Wyatt in writing (not email) with the exceptional circumstances explained. The request will then be considered and a decision made as to whether the request is granted and the leave authorised. If the absence is not authorised, parents will now receive a note informing them of this.

 

If you have any questions about anything in the attendance policy, please do contact the school office.
